Proper lubrication is crucial to prevent premature packing failure in quintuplex pumps used for hydraulic fracturing.
While under greasing packing components is a common enough issue, the primary culprit of quintuplex packing failure is the over greasing that occurs until lubricant can be physically seen leaking from the pump. This results in the over pressuring of a packing’s wiper seal until it breaks, meaning future lubrication will have limited effectiveness and inevitable heat build-up from pump operation will deform the packing.
Graco's G5 lubrication pump is a highly customizable and robust solution designed specifically for quintuplex packing lube and harsh fracking conditions, ensuring consistent and accurate dosing to reduce wear and enable pumps to remain operational. It can be purchased as a standalone pump or within an enclosure, and Graco also offers a range of other oil and gas solutions.
