Valves & Seats
Utilizing advanced materials, heat treating, computer modeling, and testing laboratory capabilities, a new line of extended life Cat® Valves & Seats was developed in early 2015. Typical valve life improvements ranging from 1.5x to 2.0x were achieved and validated for this one-piece design with proprietary molded urethane. Geometrically designed for reduced impact forces and longer life, this new design delivers an increased flow area and reduce the risk of washouts by directing fluid toward the discharge valve. The Cat Valves & Seats will fit most well stimulation pumps in the industry and the seats can be used with multiple valve changes for reduced maintenance time and longer maintenance intervals.
