NOT THE USUAL APPLICATION FOR WATER JETTING PUMPS
Three of our 1000 Series diesel quintuplex waterjetting units are headed to Alberta, Canada for two to three months. According to David Vardaman, who is in charge of the rental fleet operations, these units will be used for drilling and well stimulation services.
Our customer, a Calgary based oilfield service company specializing in high pressure fluid drilling and completion service, will utilize these units until we build and deliver new custom designed units for their operations.
The customer’s engineers worked closely with the entire Gardner Denver Water Jetting team to come up with a hybrid soft seat valve for a 15,000 PSI pump. Combine this with a new transmission configuration, the units now provide the customer with the ability to pump an extremely versatile array of fluids at a wide range of pressures and flow rates.
It is having access to this kind of equipment that will give our customers the edge in their operations now and for years to come.
