CORTEC Unveils New Cx-3 Extreme Service Choke

Houma, La. – CORTEC is excited to reveal its latest version of the Extreme Service Choke line, the CX-3.

The new CX-3 is a third generation gear operated model that features a bolted retention plate added to the gear operator. This allows for the additional support needed to eliminate shear pin breakages, diminishing down time and maximizing gear operator strength and integrity.

CORTEC’s Extreme Service Choke line offers both the piston CXE-II and gear operated CX-3 models. Standard trim sizes include 1-1/2”, 2”, and 3”. Pressure classes range from 5,000 psi to 15,000 psi. Models with rating up to 20,000 psi are available upon request. These chokes are intended for applications such as drilling, choke & kill, coil tubing, well control, frac flowback, and under balanced drilling. They offer a robust design capable of withstanding the abuse these applications can place on equipment.

“CORTEC has taken its efforts to the next level with this new addition to our line.” said Derek Johnson, Extreme Service Product Manager. “This new model [CX-3] along with our other existing products, gives us the ability to provide unmatched performance and service to our customers and their needs.”
