Where Innovation Lives

Frac Pump Sand Slinger

Posted byadminon 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.
