Frac Hose in Oklahoma

 
Fracking is the common term for hydraulic fracturing; a process used to allow natural gas and oil to be recovered from shale formations. A mixture of water, sand and chemicals are injected into the shale to create fissures and fractures that allow deposits of fossil fuels to flow upward where they can be recovered. Fracking is often referred to as horizontal mining. Oklahoma is one of the largest producers of natural gas in the United States and fracking creates many jobs for the residents of the state.
 
Frac hose is a specific type of industrial hose designed to handle the unique rigors and demands of fracking. Frac discharge hose is designed after fire hoses; both are used to deliver water at high pressures and have lay-flat characteristics. In addition to being able to handle water at high pressure, a wellhead frac hose must also be compatible with the various types of chemicals. The wellhead hoses used onsite are for use with water, mud (sand) and chemicals and deliver this medium that is pushed down the well under pressure. The long length fire hose style is used to delivery water long distances. The advantage of using this hose over pipe is that is routes itself easily over the contours of the land. Typical length of this hose is 660' in length and has two coupling types.
 
One is crimped on pipe nipples with pipe groove ends and the other uses a re-usable clamp system with pipe groove end. The re-usable is good for field repair when large hydraulic crimpers may not be available to the repair region. It is most economical to use crimp on fittings for installation at the beginning of the project then repair with re-usable fittings.  It must also be strong and versatile enough to resist the abrasion properties of sand at high speeds.
