AQUA-FRAC™ Hydro Fracturing Systems

Applications

Hydro fracturing has typically been used as a method for improving the yield of various wells by opening and flushing out previously closed fractures with high pressure water.

This same process can be used for pre-conditioning mining or before blasting to double the yield with less dynamite. The hard rock is de- stressed which lends this method to the Block Caving Method. Block caving is a low cost, underground mining technique that also supports economic mining of lower grade deposits.

Features

  • 70 mm (for NQ) and 89 mm (for HQ) diameters are standard
  • Pressures up to 12,000 psi (850 bar)
  • Choice of injection sub formats
  • Versatility and compact — easily moved around mine tunnels
  • All electrical hardware and computer systems are on board — AQUA-FRAC™ rigs are self-contained systems that only require the operator to supply electrical power.
