ALICE, TX (July 24, 2018) - VP Sales & Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer and seller of high-quality frac fluid ends and replacement parts, launches Hercules2 (H2), a new fluid end design with proprietary technology.
The H2 is engineered to decrease overall cost of ownership and cost per pumping hour by eliminating stuck nuts, D-ring washouts, and increasing packing life. With a more reliable compression seal than the standard radial seal (d-ring), this fluid end is designed to be disassembled within minutes in the field, allowing for maintenance between fracking stages and increased reliability between maintenance intervals.
“This is a completely new approach to solving an industry wide epidemic of fluid end failures in modern frac conditions. We wanted to give our clients a better solution for more fluid end hours, less washouts, less failures, and a simplified maintenance routine,” said Erik Perez, Vice President of VP Sales & Manufacturing.
The Hercules2 provides the end user a quick and easy access for maintenance, while eliminating problematic seal areas. No special tools are needed for this new frac fluid end, all that is required for disassembly is a 6# hammer.
“We want the industry to know that this is not just another fluid end, and we believe that this revolutionary design changes the frac fluid end industry,” said Perez.
The Hercules2 (H2) has an increased lifespan of more than 50% in some cases by eliminating common failure areas found on competitors fluid ends. The design is also very user-friendly and allows for quick disassembly in the field.
