CalFrac Cummins Powered Nitrogen Pumper working in Canada

This trailer mounted unit can either pump fluids or Nitrogen or both. A perfect unit for nitrified acid jobs, foamed cleanouts, or most treatments where CTU is involved, as fluid can be pumped to perform the treatment through the CTU and at the end of the job the coil can be purged with N2. This very versatile unit will save the operator set-up and travel charges when compared to two units required to do the same work. The fluid pump is rated to 1.66 m3/min and has a maximum working pressure of 55 MPa. The nitrogen pump can deliver 85 m3/min and is rated to a maximum working pressure of 69 MPa.
