Cooper Cameron Consolidates Compression Related Divisions


Published:

Cooper Cameron Corp., a leading provider of petroleum and industrial equipment and services in more than 100 countries around the world, has consolidated its two compression-related divisions, Cooper Energy Services and Cooper Turbocompressor, into one division named Cooper Compression. The new division encompasses reciprocating and centrifugal compression equipment and aftermarket parts and services, and serves customers in the energy industry and a variety of process and manufacturing industries.

"This move reinforces our commitment to provide the marketplace with the broadest range of compression solutions," said Robert J. Rajeski, president of Cooper Compression. "Cooper Compression offers a unique combination of technology leadership, product innovation and industry-leading aftermarket services for reciprocating and centrifugal compression applications."

Cooper Compression will retain and market all products and services offered by the previous divisions, including the Ajax, Superior, Cooper-Bessemer, CB Turbocharger, Nickles, Penn, Enterprise, TSI, Texcentric, Turbo Air, MSG and Vantage lines, as well as COOPERSERV Aftermarket Services.

Caterpillar Releases Valves, Seats For Pressure Pumping Customers

Caterpillar has released its Cat valves and seats for well stimulation pump fluid ends. Cat 4- and 5-series valves and seats are designed to maximize interchangeability across the Cat well stimulation fluid end line and be dimensionally compatible with industry standard fluid ends in the 2000 to 3000 hp (1491 to 2237 kW) range. Fluid end valves and seats are highly-consumed parts in well stimulation operations and, as a result, are frequently replaced. Historically, Caterpillar uses valves and seats obtained from alternate sources. Caterpillar’s new fluid end valves and seats provide decreased wear and extended life to pressure pumping customers, the company said. The material life of the fluid ends is extended by optimizing the geometry of the Cat valve and seat, increasing the contact area and improving the distribution of forces, resulting in reduced material fatigue, Cat said. The flow area is increased by balancing the pressure drop across the Cat valves, reducing flow restrictions and the potential for cavitation. Additionally, impact forces are reduced as the contact area between valve and seat has nearly doubled from previous designs. Caterpillar manufacturers a line of pressure pumps with maximum inputs ranging from 600 to 3000 bhp (447 to 2237 kW). The new valves and seats can be ordered from the global Cat dealer network.
