• Blue Lightning Piston

    Super premium bonded polyurethane piston designed for operation in extreme drilling environments.

    Super premium bonded polyurethane piston designed for operation in extreme drilling environments.

    The Mission Blue Lightning piston is manufactured from an engineered elastomeric compound that delivers excellent resistance to tear, abrasion and extrusion while maintaining high mechanical properties. A unique anti-extrusion feature, coupled with a premium elastomer, improves service life while reducing downtime and allowing for reduced pump maintenance.

    Anti-Extrusion Feature
    The anti-extrusion feature is a significant feature of the Blue Lightning. Manufactured from a proprietary bearing material that expands upon installation, this feature reduces friction by reducing or eliminating contact between the steel piston body and the liner wall. Additional benefits include reduced extrusion of the urethane and dramatically increased run times, even in pressures above 5000 psi. The bearing even reduces liner wear and liner damage over other piston designs. The Mission Blue Lightning can be operated in pressures of up to 7500 psi.

    Super Premium Elastomer
    This advanced proprietary chemical formula provides increased resistance to water, oil and synthetic drilling fluids, while providing increased temperature, abrasion and particle embedment resistance.

    The Mission Blue Lightning piston adds value through consistent run times, reduced cost per operating hour, and reduced maintenance and downtime.
