Blak-"AKTM Retention Systems
The National Oilwell Blak-JAK'" Liner retention - A
unique highly developed design that delivers
solutions today and for tomorrow's operating
Using our proprietary reciprocating pump technology we
devised a distinctive two piece component design to
simplify liner removal and re-installation. The Lok-CEL'M
assembly retains the liner in proper orientation while the
innovative Hydra-CEL'" has a dual purpose:
. Establishes the liner into its proper place by pre-
tensioning the Lok-CEL'" assembly during the

. installation process
Used to remove the tension from the Lok-CEL'" during
the liner removal process
The single Hydra-CEL'M design is very simple to maintain
and does not require individual hydraulic assemblies for
each cylinder as in competing designs. The structural body
is manufactured from high strength aerospace aluminum
alloy for lighter weight and is anodized for resistance to
corrosion. The large internal hydraulic ram easily delivers
the proper forces to assure metal to metal liner clamping
while the internal relief valve prevents over pressuring of

Self-Aligning Piston Rods

A unique solution for increased piston and liner
Designed especially for Single Acting pumps, National
Oilwell's Self Aligning Piston Rod assembly reduces piston
side loading and increases liner life in both ceramic and
chrome liners.
Features and Benefits
Dual Cooling Tubes deliver liner coolant behind the piston to
carry away heat. Major components are manufactured from
corrosion resistant 17-4 stainless steel. Also featured is an
Alloy Steel piston rod for increased strength. The piston rod
can be manually rotated without requiring any clamp
removal. The unique polyurethane flex joint design allows for
up to 0.090" side load displacement. The unique covered rod
nut provides thread protection.
The National Oilwell Self-Aligning Piston Rod assembly can
be ordered as an option for mud pumps or sold separately as
an upgrade to your existing pump.

HexTM Fluid End / Cartridge Valve

New Lightweight Compact Design
National Oilwell's Hex'" Pump Fluid End Module Assembly
changes the conversation about 7500 psi fluid end module
assemblies. The Hex'" assembly is approximately one-half
the weight of a comparable horsepower pump module
assembly, and employs unique features currently not found
on other drilling pump fluid ends.
Features and Benefits
The valve and seat is secured into a cartridge assembly that
allows rapid installation and removal. No special tools are
required for assembly or removal as in other designs and the
valve and seat change out time is significantly reduced. The
cartridge assembly uses elastomeric seals rather than a
metal-to-metal fit valve seat taper. This virtually eliminates
fluid cut valve seat decks and significantly reduces
downtime. The innovative Hex'" fluid end design utilizes the
valve seats in a horizontal plane rather than a vertical plane.
This fluid end eliminates an intersecting bore and also
reduces weight. In addition, the fluid end is engineered and
manufactured from a proprietary alloy steel that is highly
resistant to corrosion and fatigue for extended operational
Leveraged Technology
National Oilwell engineers leveraged existing and our
proprietary technology to achieve the breakthrough Hex'"
technology. The breakthrough Hex'" delivers the solutions
required by drilling contractors and operators for today's
global requirements. Hex'" FluidEnd/ CartridgeValve Assembly
