Blancett Meters Help Hydraulic Fracturing Companies

Blancett meters help hydraulic fracturing companies keep the environment safe and meet government regulations.

Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, is a process used to extract underground natural resources from below the Earth’s surface. These resources include oil, natural gas, geothermal energy, and even water. The process includes pumping fracturing fluid at high pressures into a well, sometimes drilled thousands of feet deep. The pressure of the fluid creates cracks in the underground rock, allowing trapped resources to flow up the well.

Since the fracturing fluid contains chemicals and consumes water, companies are required by the law to maintain accurate records of process fluid injected into and recovered from wells. The laws help ensure environmental and public safety.

With high accuracy and a rugged design, Blancett 1100 Series meters in up to 10" line sizes are an ideal solution for measuring process liquid in hydraulic fracturing operations; often mounted on the…
