Hydration Units

Our hydration system delivers the most reliable operation and precise automated control for “on-the-fly” hydration of fracturing fluids.

  • Description Description
  • Resources Resources

Our hydration units are designed to create the necessary time and energy required for continuous hydration of fracturing gels. The use of hydration units allows service companies to eliminate pre-gel operations that can result in lost profit due to unused gelled fluid and costly disposal. As regulations and costs continue to make it more difficult to utilize slurry gel, accurate dry gel additive systems have become a vital part of the well fracturing industry. Our systems have the ability for both dry and slurry gels.
