Frac Pump Sand Slingeron October 16, 2009
One of our oil service companies used our Pliant 25 alloy to improve the wear life of their sand slingers. The slingers are a critical high wear component in hydraulic fracturing pumps. They’re used to mix sand in the frac pumps. The slingers are over 600 Brinnell hardness and balanced to a G1 spec.
The chrome iron slingers used in the frac units achieved more than more than 4 times the service life at half the price of the original product.
