GD Energy Products Delivers Optimal Performance, Improved Geometry with Redline+ Packing

June 03, 2024


GD Energy Products (GDEP), the leading total solutions provider for the frac, drilling and well servicing market, has launched its new Redline+ Packing to improve operational performance by withstanding the harshest of hydraulic fracturing environments.

Field-proven to deliver longer life and reduced downtime, Redline+ Packing has demonstrated a significant improvement in packing performance life over GDEP’s standard Redline Packing. This latest innovation features new materials and enhanced geometry to exceed industry standards and optimize performance in high-pressure environments.

In the most challenging basins, Redline+ Packing pumped over 160 million pounds of sand prior to failure, while also reducing operational downtime. During a 12-week field trial in the Haynesville Basin at pressures up to 12,500 PSI, Redline+ Packing increased performance life on average by more than two times over standard Redline and extended maintenance intervals by 45 percent.

During an 11-week field trial in the Eagle Ford Basin at pressures up to 9,500 PSI, Redline+ Packing showed an average increase in performance life of 44 percent over standard Redline. Less unscheduled maintenance was observed due to a lower risk of packing bore washes and resulted in improved overall safety.

Across both field trials, customers recognized ease of maintenance with the new Redline+ Packing and noted a significant improvement in the speed of installation and removal time.

Jim Yanus, engineering director, GDEP, said, “Redline+ Packing is GDEP’s latest addition to our Redline Series Consumables and was established in collaboration with our customers to deliver an even higher level of performance and consistency to their operations. Field trials have proven an increase in life expectancy and endurance across any condition in the field.”

The patent-pending geometry improves sand exclusion and includes fortified materials guaranteed to reduce the risk of packing bore wash. Redline+ Packing also features a refined material makeup—delivering longer product life and increased heat and abrasion resistance in high-pressure environments. 

For more than 160 years, GDEP has built a legacy of product innovation, superior product quality and exceptional customer service. GDEP’s experienced product development team conducted extensive research into packing failures, product design and property makeup in an effort to improve packing performance and extend product life in fracking operations. Redline+ Packing is available for both GDEP and competitor frac fluid end designs.
