New pump for horizontal drilling sector
The American-made pumpfeatures an extremely high flow rate of more than 1000 gpm, making it suitable for the most demanding horizontal drilling projects.
Its light weight eases transportation between work sites and its extremely high rod load rating of 53,000 lbs ensures the pump is tough and long lasting.
The pump is also designed to operate at a slow run speed, delivering the same output, flow, and pressure as faster pumps with less violent actions, wear and friction.
The release of the GD 800HDD pump follows on from the launch of the company’s 250HDD pump last year, which expanded GD’s pump options into the HDD space for the first time.
Adam Avey, an engineering supervisor at Gardner, said: “As an extremely powerful but lightweight 800 breaking horsepower (BHP) pump, the GD 800HDD is an ideal fit for the HDD market, which has traditionally been reliant on heavy, less mobile oil and gas drilling pumps.
The quintuplex (five-cylinder) pump runs with great efficiency and can make fast work of the largest HDD projects. Additionally, there is no requirement to change pistons to meet any required pressures.”
Brandon Janda, high pressure industrial product line director at Gardner, added: “Our pumps serve as an American-made, rugged and reliable industrial pump option for the horizontal drilling market.”
