Bring the Thunder - Gardner Denver launches new 5,000-hp quintuplex pump
The pump is designed for dual fuel gas engines, electric motors, diesel engines and gas turbine direct drives.
Edward Bayhi, vice president and general manager, Petroleum & Industrial Pump Division, said, "The Thunder 5,000 HP Quintuplex pump has successfully made it through validation testing. Crucially, operators can now substantially decrease their consumable cost and fatigue cycles due to the pump's long stroke advantage. This means slower operating speeds can be maintained, resulting in longer consumable life and reduced fatigue cycles. The same flow rate can be achieved with smaller plungers, reducing operating load on the pump, leading to extended pump life and less downtime."
Gardner Denver constructs pumps that deliver the lowest total cost of ownership due to their rugged, modern designs, which improve serviceability in the field. With stainless steel construction and innovative geometry designed to minimize stress, the Thunder 5,000 HP Quintuplex pump features a range of next generation fluid end technology. The pump's 11 in. stroke length meets or exceeds the pressure and flow output of high rod load/short stroke (8 in.) pumps, and can increase consumable life by 37%.
Bayhi added, "The Thunder 5,000 HP Quintuplex pump is offered in combination with Redline Packing. This is the critical seal system in the heart of the pump, which substantially improves performance in harsh conditions, extends maintenance intervals, reduces downtime and ultimately increases profit margins for our clients. Furthermore, with our 24/7 aftermarket service and support, customers can be assured that their electric, gas and diesel-driven fleets will be in safe hands."

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
