Detailed Description

Hydration Units
Consisting of a trailer, engine, hydraulic system, open hydration tank, suction & discharge manifolds, chemical tanks, two (2) gel pumps, three (3) liquid chemical additive pumps, one (1) transfer pump, & all necessary valves & controls for normal operation.  This unit can be controlled in manual or automatic mode from the operator control console.  All hydraulic & operation parameters to be transmitted to data van.

Standard 5th Wheel to Kingpin connection, air ride suspension, ICC DOT approved LED lighting package, brakes-DOT, approved anti-lock brake system, tires: 14ply, 11R 24.5, with aluminum wheels, (6) hydraulic leveling jacks – (2) front, (2) mid, & (2) rear, rear tow connection, reflectors, & mud flaps.

Power Unit (CAT, Detroit, or Cummins)
Radiator with anti-static fan blade, static, & fan guard, electric starter, alternator, air compressor, dry type air cleaner, spark arresting muffler, & electronic control system with safety shutdown for low oil pressure, high water temperature, & low coolant level.

Hydraulic System
Direct drive system via gear box off the deck engine located on the operator control console will be the following controllers for the following motors/cylinders – (1) Suction Centrifugal Pump, (1) Discharge Centrifugal Pump, (2) Gel Pumps, (3) liquid chemical pumps, (2) chemical tank agitators, & (6) cylinders.

Hydration Tank
(1) carbon steel hydration tank will be installed on the trailer.  The tank is within view of the operator console & equipped with baffles inside the hydration tank. Tank is designed & constructed to eliminate side wall pop out.  Hydration tank access ladder.  A man lift will be installed on the unit -manually operated.  Automatic tub leveling system, & (2) Endress + Hauser over flow switches & probes will be installed inside the hydration tank.
