Horizontal Directional Drilling

Directional Drilling

FMC Technologies was challenged in the early 1990’s by the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) industry to provide a product that would maximize the pump's economic value by helping increase drilling efficiency by lowering operating downtime. FMC Technologies' pump team accepted the challenge and went to work to develop a business solution to meet the HDD market needs. The result of their efforts was a broad piston and plunger pump offering that provides a business solution to the HDD market.

FMC Technologies' HDD piston and plunger product line is capable of pumping abrasive fluids at pressures up to 2,500 psi with flow rates up to 905 gpm. The line has been developed to meet the high flow needs of the stand alone equipment as well as the smaller footprint requirements of the mobile equipment side of the market. The product line uses state of the art component technology that allows for longer periods of time between services, lowering the pump's life cycle cost per operation. The highly efficient fluid chambers give the piston line of products enhanced priming characteristics, along with front access for easy maintenance and shorter service cycles.

It’s the commitment to listening to its customers' requirements and concerns that has enabled FMC Technologies to provide a custom product manufactured to the highest quality and reliability standards. Overall, FMC Technologies' HDD business solution offers unsurpassed value to the Horizontal Directional Drilling marketplace by providing a concept of engineered, manufacturing, operations and value added solutions.
