Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a drilling method used to extract petroleum (oil) or natural gas from deep in the Earth. In the fracking process, cracks in and below the Earth's surface are opened and widened by injecting water, chemicals, and sand at high pressure.
Mounted on a truck, trailer, or skid, hydraulic fracturing pumps are diesel-powered heavy-duty, high-pressure pumps. The pumping equipment helps in hydraulic and acid fracturing and solvent and liquid carbon dioxide pumping. They work well in different environments, be it desert, arctic, or tropic.
