Frac Shack™ technology 

 

To reduce significantly the refuelling HS&E risk to people, equipment, and the project itself, ERS has designed, manufactured, and patented a modular Frac Shack™ fuel delivery system. Our Frac Shack™ technology makes it possible to remove workers from the hot zone and eliminates atmospheric fuel spraying on the frac pad, while ensuring environmental protection during the hot fuelling process. Since introducing the Frac Shack™ over a year ago, mangers using this technology have reported a saving of 1 to 2 hours a day in production down time and the elimination of refuelling stress.

With the ERS Frac Shack™, existing intake systems require no retro fitting. The plug-and-play design replaces the fuel cap and controls all aspects of refuelling the pumper systems. This system allows hot refuelling on the frac pad without the intense danger of fuel spray near the hot equipment.
