Proper lubricating and greasing of valves – that means the right product in the right place – aids in reducing operating torque and helps protect from seizing when operation is vital. When applied correctly, the grease lets the valve seal properly and perform per the product’s specifications.
But keeping the valves operating efficiently and sealing properly requires regular maintenance. Standard operating procedure recommends performing maintenance every 4–6 pumping stages. Filling the body of the frac valve with the correct lubricant will work to ensure operations are uninterrupted and help avoid expensive repairs.
Not all lubricants are created equal. In fact, the correct lubricant is essential to ensure your operations continue uninterrupted.
During product development, Klüber Lubrication’s focus was to achieve increased integrity and valve functionality. Extensive testing has proven a high washout resistance to water, aggressive chemicals, and acids.
Lubricants must meet both the requirements specific to the individual components and those of their various fields of application. Klüber Lubrication has been answering increasingly demanding requirements by manufacturing efficient high-performance lubricants for more than 80 years.
