“VorTeq reduces wear and tear on equipment.”

“The licensing deal with Schlumberger speaks volumes; I can see the product being implemented across the globe in the next few years. Anything that improves efficiency in the field is a must at the moment.”

Energy Recovery, Inc. – Corporate Overview

Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERII) converts pressure energy into a usable asset and preserves pumps subject to hostile processing environments, such as with its VorTeqTM system and the industry leading PX Pressure Exchanger. Within the oil & gas, chemicals, and water industries, its products save clients more than $1.7 billion annually.

For hydraulic fracturing engineers, one of the biggest problems on the jobsite is pump failure. VorTeq uses Energy Recovery’s revolutionary PX Pressure Exchanger technology to re-route abrasive proppants away from high-pressure pumps. It ensures that only pure water touches the pumps, extending pump lifespans to new levels.

VorTeq defends high-pressure pumps through major advancements in both engineering and materials science. Made from tungsten carbide, the heart of
the VorTeq hydraulic pumping system is 1,000x more abrasionresistant
than steel. Engineered with a single moveable part, it’s designed to endure extraordinarily high pressures, high flows, extreme temperatures and harsh proppants.

The VorTeq hydraulic pumping system is manufactured as a complete manifold trailer, and fits into a frac fleet like a traditional missile.

Since VorTeq handles abrasive proppants and extends the life of pumps, operators can also explore new ways to configure frac sites, including swapping positive displacement pumps with more efficient pumping solutions, and using idle equipment at other sites.
