New-Generation Trailer-Mounted Twin Cementer
Calfrac combined today’s best technology with the practicality and peace-of-mind provided by a multiple-backup system to create its new twin cementing unit. The twin Detroit diesel power units are coupled with the latest oilfield service transmissions driving variable-speed MSI Triplex pumps. The engines also drive hydraulic pumps individually capable of running all hydraulically driven components. These twinned components are especially important during cementing operations when there may be a shutdown or component failure. It can pump cement slurries with densities up to 2,200 kg/m³ (20 ppg) and a rate of 2.8 m³/min (18 bbls/min).
The twin cementer also features a high-energy closed mixing system capable of pumping high-density cement slurries at high rates. The automated direct bulk-fed mixing system provides density control and eliminates operator error, as well as providing a dust-free and environmentally sound work area. The state-of-the-art control cab gives provides safety, communications capability, and crew comfort in all environments while ensuring control system integrity.
