Designed and manufactured from premium-grade materials and processes, the SPM 2.0 valve & seat encompasses a one-piece, patents-pending design, proprietary polymers, and innovative geometry – all of which Weir says work together to create one of the industry’s longest-lasting expendables.Validated through extensive testing to perform two times longer, Weir says the SPM 2.0 valve & seat is a vital component in helping oil and gas companies maximize their return on investment by delivering longer operational service life and increasing pumping hours.Benefits are said to include: bonded valves and improved performance; increased resistance to abrasion, extrusion and flow erosion; and, it eliminates molding movement, leakage and separation from valve.The SPM 2.0 valve & seat is designed and manufactured in-house to sustain rigid quality control standards.
