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.

Mineral Rich Regions
The Business Changing the face of the Earth
Mines vs. Environment New mines are more protective of the environment Engine emissions are now a concern Extended oil and filter change intervals are highly desired
High Altitude Mines are Typical
Challenges at Altitude Air Filter Plugging -- Dustouts Black Smoke Control of turbo speed excursions Fuel Quality Health Risks to Personnel
Aftertreatment System: Scope of Supply - Preliminary
Engine Mounting Mounting System has Three Main Functions: Support the engine Isolate for vibration & noise Break the load path to the vehicle body AEB – Designing the Engine Installation to Minimize Installed Vibration
