Weir Launches SPM® EdgeX™ Valve and Carbide Seat
Weir Oil & Gas, a leading upstream provider of systematized pressure pumping and pressure control equipment and services, announced today the launch of its new SPM® EdgeX™ Valve and Carbide Seat. The EdgeX™ Valve and Carbide Seat increases seat life an average of six times and doubles valve life compared to conventional valves and seats—for substantial cost savings and reductions of nonproductive time (NPT).
The new SPM® EdgeX™ Valve and Carbide Seat is a timely solution for operators focusing on their pump utilization and downtime for pump maintenance. Engineered with the nuances of the entire frac site in mind, the EdgeX™ Valve and Carbide Seat enables operators to push their frac fleets harder while significantly reducing maintenance costs for valves and seats. The patented technology of the EdgeX™ Carbide Seat sets a new standard by offering an average of six times longer seat life than conventional seats. This dramatic increase in longevity enables operators to reduce the amount of time pulling seats while reducing expenses for a costly consumable.
The EdgeX™ Valve and Carbide Seat offers greater resistance to wear, cracking and washout in the harshest pumping conditions—including those with large particles—without risk of shattering. It fits any standard taper fluid end and eliminates sensitivity to installation errors due to its strategic design and placement of tungsten carbide and steel.
The 30-degree strike angle maximizes interchangeability. The EdgeX™ Valve incorporates proprietary urethane heads, contributing to double the valve life and further reducing operating expenses, maintenance time and safety risks.
