Case Studies

Tuff Breed®WSP Extreme® Gold Pressure Ring and SandDog® Header Ring Achieve 435-Hour Run for Pressure Pumping Operation

One of the leading Service Providers in the Haynesville Shale contacted CDI regarding the premature failure of the existing well service packing in their pressure pumping operations. The Service Provider was also experiencing related packing bore washouts, unplanned downtime, and increased packing and maintenance costs.  Bottom line: existing well service packing was not meeting the required needs for the long run times and multiple frac stages necessary for the operation and environmental conditions. Download the case study to learn how we worked with our partner to solve this significant challenge. 

A497 and A498 Material Blend Solve Tough Packing Problem On Non-Lube, Bone-Dry Ethylene Transfer Compressors

A chemical facility in Texas was experiencing significant problems with leaking packing rings on three of their major reciprocating compressor units. The packing failures led to frequent replacement on the packing rings as the products were lasting as little as a few months on all three compressors. The resulting operational interruptions were costing time and money, but also the unreliable packing rings were becoming a continuous concern. Download the case study to learn how we helped solve this major challenge. 

CDI Seal Stack Design Achieves Lloyds Accreditation for Critical HPHT North Sea Service

A major subsea service provider approached CDI to help them with a custom-designed test apparatus to achieve accreditation from Lloyds BV to provide high-level testing in the North Sea. The criteria included delivering a verifiable testing procedure to evaluate external pressure at elevated temperature with gas, and where the limit of the connection would be found during the failure tests at elevated temperature with oil.

CDI’s Carbon Fiber Reinforced PEEK Material Selected for New Valve Design

A leading manufacturer of high-performance valves sought to partner with CDI on an ambitious project to redesign one of their highest volume products, with a target goal of completion and commercialization within one year. Download the case study to learn more.
