GD Energy Products enhances fluid end design for GD 800HDD pumps

GD Energy Products’ (GDEP) GD 800HDD pumps, which serve a wide variety of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) applications, now has a new fluid end technology.

The compact and lightweight GD 800HDD pump features an extremely high rod load and delivers a flow rate of over 1,000 GPM. The new fluid end design employs GDEP’s patented Falcon retaining technology, making it easier to service and maintain the pump. This innovative design accelerates valve changeout time by more than fivefold, resulting in reduced maintenance downtime during operations. In addition, costly third-party replacement parts that accompanied the previous ‘cage-style’ valve design are eliminated which enables improved operational efficiencies and streamlined procurement.

Colin Krueger, HDD product line manager, GDEP, said: “Our new fluid end design is a game-changer for the HDD industry. We have added highly-efficient valve technology along with our Redline consumables to our fluid ends, making it easier to maintain and less expensive for our customers to replace.”

Designed with the customer in mind, GDEP’s Redline valves were engineered based on feedback for a valve with serviceability, availability, and cost efficiency. GDEP’s Redline consumables, constructed entirely of US-made parts, deliver higher performance and extended maintenance intervals. The valves are stocked at all of the company’s facilities and central warehouse, providing easy access for replacement parts.

“By introducing GDEP’s Redline consumables to the HDD industry, we are providing easy-to-source parts and increased cost savings for our customers,” added Krueger. “The Redline valves have proven their performance in the frac industry that has higher pressures, temperatures and flow rates - we are excited to now deliver the same enhanced benefits to our HDD line.”
