Long run life, extended operating range in harsh environments

Tiger Shark® pumps adapt to changing well production, improving operating range and run life. Tiger Shark II pumps are designed for maximum flexibility in conventional, unconventional, and gassy wells, while Tiger Shark III addresses extremely abrasive deep wells with high discharge pressure.

Tiger Shark III 400 Series Pumps

Flexible extended operating range and longer run life in deep high-pressure wells. 

Features new technological advancements designed to solve the challenges of both conventional and unconventional wells, which can include significant amounts of abrasive material that need to be pumped, along with fluids exceeding normal pressure operating limits.

New technological advancements solve the problem of challenges with both conventional and unconventional wells that have a significant amount of abrasion material that needs to be pumped, along with fluid exceeding the normal pressure operating limit:

  • Enhanced threaded connections eliminate the need to weld or collar, and provide an increase in allowable discharge pressure, and higher reliability in deep wells 
  • Abrasion-resistant overlap (ARO) bearings provide additional run life in highly abrasive environments, and guard against cutting the key and the shaft*
  • XRange® Xtreme (XRX) advanced bearing system provides upthrust protection, thus enabling a wider operating range*

    * Application-specific option


ESP Run Life Tripled with Tiger Shark III Abrasion-Resistant Bearings

Abrasion protection in deep, high-pressure, and highly abrasive well saves operator over $150,000 in operating expense.

Tiger Shark II Pumps

Designed for maximum flexibility in conventional, unconventional, abrasive, and gassy wells.  

Pumps offer an industry-leading, extended operating range with capabilities to produce volumes from lower than 25 barrels per day and increasing up to 64,000 barrels per day.

High-performance pumps for applications up to 70,000 BPD

Tiger Shark II pumps handle the widest range of production volume. Extended range (XR) flange sleeve technology is available for the most challenging of both conventional and unconventional plays. XR compression technology provides efficient and reliable operation for large-volume applications such as municipal and water wells. Specialty coatings protect pumps from harsh downhole conditions common in unconventional wells, while our novel intake adds further protection from formation fines and frac sand.


  • Patented Ring Lock XT™ bearing system with high thermal expansion material keeps bushings and bearings in place in high-temperature conditions
  • Proprietary hardened bearings deliver 3x longer pump performance
  • Snap-Trap sleeve ensures reliability of spiral rings
  • Wide-vane technology increases gas and solids handling
  • Flanged sleeve sand exclusion technology and the patented Erosion Buster® design decrease wear
  • Design eliminates compression pump and associated time-consuming shimming

Case Study: Alaska

Diffusers with Erosion Buster®

A side-by-side comparison with standard pump diffusers show Erosion Buster® design nearly doubles Tiger Shark® II pump run life.
