Safety Plug for Immediate Oilfield Pressure Relief

Date: May 20, 2013
Oseco has released a new safety plug to protect high-pressure lines and fluid ends on fracking sites. The Oseco Safety Plug arrives preset to the user’s specified burst pressure and is installed in seconds, eliminating the downtime that comes with manually adjusting a traditional relief valve.

The safety plug immediately relieves pressure, such as pumping against a closed valve. Unlike transducers whose kick-outs can slow pumps but cannot instantly relieve pressure, Oseco’s technology delivers immediate pressure relief.

The safety plug has a bursting pressure range of 6,000 to 15,500 pounds per square inch gauge and a flow rate up to 1,500 gallons per minute, the highest amount available. The plug lasts up to six months without maintenance and has been compression-loaded disc-tested to 3.5 million cycles with no effect on accuracy.

Each unit comes with certification paperwork documenting the plug’s accuracy.
