http://bit.ly/sgA92f Hydraulic fracturing has become and important method for recovering oil and natural gas resources from challenging formations such as shale or coalbeds. This methodology represents a significantly more complex process, one that requires equipment for pumping, mixing, water treatment, and chemical processing. In order to monitor all of these systems, LIME Instruments has developed a data acquisition device that can keep everyone from field workers to management, and accounting to purchasing departments informed about how the well is performing. NI LabVIEW is at the heart of this system, giving LIME Instruments the ability to increase development of their product faster than the competition. And coupled with the rugged NI CompactRIO, they can use a single development platform to configure the entire system with fewer resources.
