By eliminating one of the most common causes of fluid end failure – fatigue cracking at the intersection of the bores – new Cat Cube Bore well stimulation technology extends block life by 50% or more. Its innovative geometry significantly reduces the downtime and costs associated with fluid end replacement. Traditional products focus stress to the corners of the intersecting bore, resulting in high concentrated stresses in localized areas. The Cat Cube Bore design disperses stress from the high-pressure bore into the surrounding material. It removes material in critical areas near the bore intersections and smoothes large corners, which in turn smoothes the stress profiles and allows energy
