Alltite Creates Sparkless Pump

Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

For years nipple up crews have worked with electric pumps that spark and create ignition sources. To prevent explosions and well fires, crews used work-arounds like fifty or one hundred foot long high-pressure hoses to keep the ignition source far enough away from the well site to reduce the threat. Despite this, the pumps still have electrical remote controls that are necessary to operate the bolting equipment right next to a well that might have leaking hydrocarbons.

This has resulted in well fires, injuries and even the loss of lives in the oil industry. Alltite’s new pump, called the H2H Pump, can easily be powered off of a PTO on a common service truck or a diesel-powered generator. This eliminates all ignition sources such as extension cords, remote switches, fuses or circuit boards, and further renders electrical generators unnecessary. The H2H pump can be located right next to the work area which increases hydraulic wrench speed by allowing for the use of short high pressure twinline hoses to connect the wrenches. Used in the harshest conditions, the H2H is made of corrosion resistant non-sparking stainless steel. Now oil field employees can escape the dangers of bolting in explosive environments.
