Weir unveils new frac pump for unconventional gas formations

Source: Weir SPM

Weir SPM introduces a new triplex frac pump, the Destiny™ TWS 2500, that addresses industry demand for high performance in the harsh environments of unconventional gas formations. Following three years of research, design innovation, engineering and extreme testing, the TWS 2500 has proven to be a durable and technologically advanced frac pump for North America shale plays. 

The TWS 2500 offers a high rod load capacity at 273,000 lbs and 2500 horsepower. It has a 10" stroke producing fewer cycles for the same amount of flow rate as an 8" stroke pump. Fewer duty cycles result in less wear on expendables and better durability for the entire pump. This combination provides more operating ranges than any other triplex pump in this category currently in the market. 

Dubbed "Destiny™", the TWS 2500 is a totally new frac pump built with the latest engineering tools to meet the industry's needs for superior performance in harsh environments. 

"Our customers needed better performance from their equipment to impact their operations successfully. Their current equipment reflected decades-old technology; we responded with innovation," said Gavin Nicol, president of Weir SPM. "Our job is to give our customers solutions to their problems. This frac pump solves their current issues and reduces their total cost of operations."
