The HydrationLink system consists of 5 Chem-add loops and Auto-Tub Leveling controls.
Each chemical has closed loop control based on the blender suction fluid rate and required concentration, and it also controls automatic tub level control.
HydrationLink integrates with BlenderLink and automatically controls the blender tub level.
The blender tub level will be maintained at the tub level setpoint through closed loop control of suction rate based on tub level.
As with all Advanced Measurements controls, the HydrationLink controller can operate on its own or be remotely controlled from the DVCommand system.
In manual mode, an operator will have manual control of the inlet valve using a potentiometer. When not being automated, our tub level control can be operated locally in automatic or manual mode, depending on the Auto/Manual/Off switch.
Like all of our controls, HydrationLink is “plug-and-play” — once connected to FracCommand’s proprietary TCP/IP network, HydrationLink controls are automatically recognized by DVCommand providing easy setup on the job site.
HydrationLink comes with an operator console complete with integral control system.
Customized versions (custom operator panel and drop in backplane) can also be provided.
HydrationLink provides Ethernet and RS-232 outputs to transmit data collected from the system.
