Cost-efficient hydraulic fracturing pump fluid end

18 May, 2020

Gardner Denver High Pressure Solutions (HPS), the total solutions provider for the drilling, well servicing and frac pumps market, has launched its new, next-generation, cost-efficient fluid end: the Gardner Denver VX Hydraulic fracturing pump fluid end (VX).

The lightweight VX has been designed for use with GD-2500Q hydraulic fracturing pumps and comparable 8 in. stroke quintuplex power ends from other manufacturers, as a replacement for the larger and heavier Gardner Denver SGWS fluid end. The VX represents an economical alternative to the SGWS fluid end while utilising many of the existing SGWS internals such as valves and seats, Redline consumables, patented Falcon Technology, and suction cover retainers.


Tony McLain, vice president of sales for Gardner Denver’s HPS division, says: “The VX fluid end is revolutionary in our industry as it weighs 2000 lbs less than standard industry fluid ends, while maintaining the performance, longevity, and convenient installation configuration of our traditional SGWS. Our testing has proven that the VX is an inexpensive alternative to the SGWS while fatigue life, thread strength, and washout life meets or exceeds that of the SGWS. The new VX utilises a standard 6- Cost-efficient hydraulic fracturing pump fluid end bolt flange configuration and is a direct replacement for the SGWS and most competitor fluid ends.”

Ultimate combination

Edward Bayhi, vice president and general manager of Gardner Denver’s HPS division, adds: “Gardner Denver constructs fluid ends that have provided the lowest total cost of ownership and superior performance for decades. Our customers asked us to deliver a fluid end that meets their equipment and budget expectations in the 2020 frac market and beyond. They needed a fluid end that delivered high quality, lightweight, cost-efficiency at initial purchase and over the life of the pump. The VX fluid end delivers on these expectations and represents the ultimate combination of Gardner Denver performance, quality and efficiency.”
