Quintuplex: 47.50-inch fluid end (9.0-inch centers)
Run life. Operating efficiency. Maintenance costs. Oilfield service providers are under more pressure than ever to optimize all aspects of fluid end economics. That’s why the APEX™ fluid end was engineered specifically to reduce the total cost of ownership by both outlasting and outperforming alternatives.
The APEX features optimized cross-bore geometry that stands up to the pressure, as well as proprietary surface treatments that help better maintain integrity. In combination, these features work to eliminate stress corrosion cracking and fatigue failures for extended cycle life and better economics.
These units also accept all commonly available loose components such as packing replacement sets, valves, seats, bore seals and more. So you can standardize fleetwide for less inventory and more supply chain efficiency. And like all Vulcan fluid ends, its Advanced Stainless™ construction means you get more life in the field.
