HydrationLink

HydrationLink is a hydration unit control system that provides quick and efficient mixing of fluids and chemicals to the desired concentrations for a well stimulation operation. 

Improve job efficiency with responsive control, both locally and remotely, to rapidly achieve specified concentrations. In local control, the operator can manipulate each of the control parameters directly from the hydration unit panel. In remote mode, the unit is controlled by screens centrally located in the data van. In auto mode, the system controls the desired parameters through the use of PID control loops.
