Big D has fully automated blending manifolds to be used as part of our Water Treatment and Water Transfer services. The blending manifolds are designed to blend fresh and treated produced water. Blending treated produced water with fresh water allows for more efficient frac operations that can greatly lower the cost associated with friction reducer requirements. The blending units can be manually or mechanically controlled for the precise blend needed for fracing operations.
The manifolds have flow meters on both inlets as well as the blended outlet. At both inlet and outlet points the system monitors conductivity, ORP, and pH. The system is automated to make adjustments based on the desired parameters required. Big D’s Automation department can provide real time reporting and data logging that can be viewed from any mobile device. We understand the high volume of water required during a frac, therefore the manifolds were designed to handle rates of 120 to 140 BPM!
