1 Bill Spitzer & Associates Lincoln Automated Lubrication Systemsfor the Well Service Industry
2 WELL SERVICE INDUSTRY TRANSITION Industry transition to horizontal drillingMulti-Stage FracturingEquipment operating longer hours at higher pressuresPlaces higher reliability demands on frac pumping equipment
3 Frac Pump Packing Lube Packing lube system expectations: Prolong packing lifeMinimal use of the right lubricantDelivery system to be proven, simple, and rugged
4 OIL SYSTEMS Advantages: Oil is best lubricant Low cost option Disadvantages:Difficult to controlOver lube is typicalEnvironmental issuesSystems are pressurized (30 to 50 psi) and oil flows to path of least resistance
5 PUMP IN A BOX Advantages All inclusive package Low cost option Suitable for conventional vertical well stimulationDisadvantagesUndersized for multi-stage stimulationRefill every four hoursOperator tampering to “speed up” refilling processContamination caused by poor refilling techniquesDifficult to verify pump element operationDamage to controls during stimulation process
6 SYSTEM UPGRADE EXPECTATIONS Increase reservoir capacityPicking the right lubricantUse of very light bodied greaseDelivering the right lubricant, in smaller shots, more frequently by counting strokesMinimize the number of operator touchesReliabilityRuggednessOperator SafetyLocal service and supportKeep it simple
7 NEW CENTRO-MATIC PACKING LUBE SYSTEM AdvantagesLarge capacity reservoirIncrease in lube consumptionIncrease in packing lifeMinimizes operator “touches”Rugged, reliable, simpleDisadvantagesChange from conventional methodMethod or plan to bulk fill reservoirs in shop and field
8 LINCOLN 85518 PUMP STATION Hydraulic driven high pressure pump Large capacity fabricated tank (60 lb.)Minimizes operator touchesFilter Screen on pump inlet to minimize pumping large particulateDip stick for lubricant level checkFixed flow and pressure control (2 gpm, 300 psi)RepairableField Proven around the world in the harshest of environments
9 LINCOLN SL-V INJECTORS Centro-Matic injectors are the industry standard for miningEach injector is adjustableHandles up to #2 GreaseVisual Indication of operationBuilt in grease fitting for manual lube option
11 SYSTEM JUSTIFICATION Eliminates daily manual fill From once per day to refilling every 5 days + depending on reservoir capacityIncreases personnel safety and operator tamperingMinimizes operator involvementMinimizes human touches, minimizes contamination, minimizes system issues and maximizes uptimeReliable delivery of lubricantMaximizes packing life and stimulation equipment uptimeExtend system life from months to yearsSmaller lube shots, more frequently, quickly replenishes lube film strengthProven technologyPaybackLess than one year compared to conventional packaged systemsSystem designed to last for years rather than months
12 BLENDERSQUICKLUB SYSTEMRugged environment leads to problems with divider valvesCENTRO-MATIC SYSTEMWithstands harsh enviornment, while consuming lubricant.
13 ALL ABOUT THE END USERLincoln supports its product with best Service, Installation, and Warranty Support in the industry
