Southern Stim brings longer lasting frack pumps to market

By Luke Geiver | April 07, 2018

When Southern Stimulation Technologies formed in 2017, co-founder Chad Hawkins said the company wanted to provide the pressure pumping industry with higher pressure, longer lasting pumps. With the release of two new pumps designed for pressure pumping applications across the entire North American shale scene, the company believes it has made a big entrance into the market.

The SS-600 Triplex and the SS-1000 Triplex are new models that feature an 8-inch stroke length. According to the company, the stroke-length design helps the pump operate 30 percent more efficiently when compared to traditional designs. The result is a longer lasting pump that can perform more pumping cycles.

“Having dedicated most of my career to this product line, I’m excited to move forward and continue to support our customers as I have for the past decade,” said Rob McPheron, co-owner of Southern Stim. The company is working to improve on Axon and Demay pumps while bringing new technology to the market all to cut operational costs for customers, McPheron said.

“When we formed Southern Stimulation Technologies, we did so with one goal in mind: to give our customers a better pump that would withstand higher pressures while outlasting the industry standard pressure pumping equipment that is on the market today,” said Hawkins. “We will continue to push those limits to provide the best equipment option for our clients.”

The company was founded in 2017 and is based out of Tomball, Texas. In addition to pumps, it sells equipment for cementing, acidizing, coil tubing and general pumping equipment.
