Built specifically for today’s operational and economic realities, the SPM® QEM 3000 Frac Pump features a long list of industry firsts. Running longer and more reliably than intermittent-duty pumps, this continuous-duty pump delivers a 17-percent reduction in total cost of ownership.
Continuous duty means full rod load, all the time.
Longer horizontals, higher pressures, and unrelenting environments have pushed most frac pumps past their capabilities. More than ever, operators need a pump built to handle the demands of continuous-duty operations. That means running at full rod load—not just occasionally, but all the time, maximizing the amount of available horsepower on site.
The SPM® QEM 3000 is the industry’s first high-horsepower frac pump built for continuous duty at 275,000 lbf rod load—validated at Weir’s state-of-the-art R&D facility in Fort Worth and through harsh field trials. Engineered by Weir from the ground up, it specifically addresses the shortcomings that lead to premature pump failure.
Less equipment on-site, with aligned maintenance.
Because the SPM® QEM 3000 is designed for true, continuous operation, downtime is dramatically reduced. Fewer backup pumps are required on site. Synchronizing maintenance schedules with the engine and transmission reduces downtime and total cost of ownership even further.
