High pressures must be maintained to pump these fluids down the hole; the abrasive materials in the materials also cause considerable wear and tear on the pump, especially the valves at the fluid end
The new versions, with modified fluid end
engineering, are now rated with a maximum pressure of 100 bar at a maximum flow of 15 lpm, a modification that should open up many new applications.
The electrical centrifugal pump for the liner wash keeps the fluid end
of the pump cool and lubricated.
AODD pumps can be split so that the "power side" is mostly located remotely in an unclassified area and the fluid end
can be placed in a classified area, with only an instrument air-supply line connecting the two.
The ProCam MD offers a diaphragm monitoring system that signals the onset of diaphragm wear, and has a leak-flee, hermetically-sealed fluid end

Front and top caps on the fluid end
facilitate visual inspection and replacement of the valve components.
One package matches the WH-1300 model LEWCO pump with a Cat 3512 DITA engine rated at 1,300 horsepower; maximum flow rates with the standard 5,000-psi fluid end
modules are 780 gallons per minute at 130 spm.
