Fluid End Modules

Fluid end modules are workhorses of mud pump systems, but extreme working environments make them especially vulnerable to stress, wear and damage. In choosing durable fluid end parts that resist cracking and corrosion, you’re making a wise long-term investment for your operations.

Forum offers a full line of high-quality fluid end modules that are entirely manufactured in the United States. Designed for the challenges of higher-pressure drilling, they are crafted with industry-leading materials and technologies to resist cracking and reduce stress concentrations for significantly longer life. Complementary features include our industry-leading P-Quip® liner retention and rod systems. Additional benefits and features include:

  • Significantly reduced internal stresses
  • Banded Bore® technology for selected configurations
  • Machined from 4130 forged heat-treated material
  • Rated working pressure of 7,500 pounds per square inch (psi)
  • Two-piece, L-shape, valve-over-valve and mono-block for well service available
  • Configurations to fit virtually all pump manufacturer designs
