OIL & GAS
From hydraulic fracturing to retrieve natural gas to down-hole oil well components, Wabash presses perform critical functions for the demanding requirements of the energy industry.
Our proppant crush test presses, for instance, are vital for testing the strength of sand used to hold fissures open in hydraulic fracturing wells. If sand breaks down, gas cannot be extracted from shale rock. Our customers test proppant sand by pressing it then putting it through a sieve to determine how much it breaks down.
For down-hole wells and other oil-drilling applications, our compression and transfer presses produce an array of critical parts from ball check valves to seals and more. Wabash presses transform rubber and composite materials into parts for underground pumps, housings, isolation joints, and more.
