Brake cables are a critical element of safe pumpjack operations. Pumpjacks that have brake cables that are vertically aligned are vulnerable to water contamination when the seals break down over time due to sun and sand erosion. This can result is frozen or compromised brake cables that fail when engaged.
Brake cable failures are typically identified when the brake is engaged to conduct maintenance, resulting in costly delays to planned workover operations and additional expense related to brake cable replacement.
Extend the life of new and existing brake cables to prevent premature failure by installing Silverstream’s Brake Cable Seal Saver. Its easy to install and a very small investment in preventative maintenance and the safety of your personnel.
