Multitrim Shale Choke Valves

API Spec 6A qualified for production, injection, and flowback applications in standard and severe environments

Shale choke valves.

Adapt the choke valve to the operating environment and increase uptime

With multiple trim options to suit changing conditions, our multitrim shale choke valves accommodate a wide range of oilfield operations. Their modular design and easily interchangeable trim styles provide chokes with enhanced versatility. Further, their adaptability for various modes of actuation enable you to change the actuation type in the field without disassembling the choke, minimizing production downtime.

Case Study: More than Tenfold Increase in Flowback Choke Valve Service Life During Frac Plug Drillout, Pennsylvania

Read how a new diamond trim for the CAM20-FB multitrim choke valve exhibited little erosive wear even after 62 frac plugs were drilled out, compared with conventional trims that require replacement every 5–6 plugs.

Improve erosion resistance

Chokes are frequently exposed to erosive wear because of sand and other particles in the production fluids. If left unattended, washouts and choke failures can result, endangering personnel, environmental safety, and production. Multitrim chokes offer full trim interchangeability, enabling planned maintenance for increased uptime. A replaceable needle tip and external sleeve trim further facilitate maintenance.

Enhance production efficiency and reduce formation damage

Changing trims saves the time and cost associated with purchasing a different type of choke when well conditions change. Multitrim shale choke valves have a significantly extended service life with enhanced controllability due to innovative trim design and the use of advanced materials. The result is more efficient production and less formation damage.
