GD Energy Products’ new Extreme Duty Drilling Valves and Seats offer superior performance in drilling pump applications

GD Energy Products (GDEP), the leading total solutions provider for the frac, drilling and well servicing market, has proven during field trials that its new Extreme Duty Drilling Valves and Seats deliver supreme performance and reliability in ultra-high temperature drilling pump applications.

Designed for optimal flow efficiency and maximum sealing, the Extreme Duty Drilling Valves and Seats feature a high-endurance urethane, field-proven to perform in temperatures up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The valves and seats, rated for pressures up to 7500 PSI, are also compatible with both oil and water-based drilling muds. Due to their innovative design, the Extreme Duty Drilling Valves and Seats offer a longer running life in which enhanced safety is delivered through decreasing the rate of changeouts as well as cost-saving benefits.

While operating under the most difficult conditions, the valves have shown an increased performance life of 40 percent over GDEP’s Heavy Duty Drilling Valves and Seats. During a one-month trial in the Delaware Basin, the Extreme Duty Valves and Seats had a running time of more than 1000 hours, providing a reduction in maintenance levels as well as lower inventory and consumption rates. In the Eagle Ford Shale under the harshest environment of temperatures and mud properties, the valves and seats achieved 800 hours running life – a 25 percent increase in performance over the leading competitor.

OJ Adkisson, Drilling Sales Director, said: “GDEP delivers operational excellence and efficiency with all of our consumable products. The new Extreme Duty Drilling Valves and Seats are GDEP’s latest addition to their Redline Series Consumables and were designed with the customer in mind to increase the life span of their pumping equipment. They showed a significant increase in performance life during the Delaware Basin and Eagle Ford trials, proving they are ready to endure the most rugged conditions in the field.”
