Allison Transmission 9832 Oil Field Series™ chosen for Lanzhou Shengda high-tech fracturing truck

The Lanzhou Shengda 3000 fracturing truck is equipped with an Allison 9832 Oil Field Series™ transmission.

BEIJING – Lanzhou Shengda 3000 fracturing trucks equipped with the Allison 9832 Oil Field Series™ transmission have pumped up the pace of shale oil and gas recovery in China.

Poor road conditions and mountainous terrain often limit the size and amount of equipment that can be transported to a work site. In addition, shale oil and gas deposits are often found at greater depths in China, requiring more pressure for extraction.

Delivering 3,200 horsepower and weighing up to 44 percent less than its competition, the 9832 OFS provides a best in class power-to-weight ratio. According to Lanzhou Shengda, customers using two 9832 OFS-equipped 3000 trucks were able to replace six LT1050 fracturing trucks used previously.

“Allison products have been highly regarded by the oilfield industry in China due to extraordinary quality and superior advantages. For years, our company has been greatly cooperating with Allison in different product lines. The 3000 fracturing truck proves again Allison’s extraordinary reputation and quality,” said Gao Jiemin, general manager of Lanzhou Shengda Oil Production Equipment Manufacturing Ltd.

In addition, the equipment maker said the 9832 OFS delivers consistent torque, stable oil pressure, lower oil temperature, a wide speed ratio and an available pipeline pressure test function.

Lanzhou Shengda began developing the 3000 fracturing truck in November 2016 using proprietary technology that limits its weight to under 44 tons and length to 12 meters. The fracturing truck adopts an 8*4 chassis jointly produced by Sinotruck and MAN and is equipped with a 16V4000S83L Detroit Diesel engine (EU III -compliant) and a Lanzhou Shengda-developed 5-cylinder 5ZB300/140 fracturing pump.   

Despite delivering more than 3,000-hp and 12200-Newton meters of torque, the 9832 OFS is sufficiently light and compact for easy installation in the 3000 fracturing truck, said Lanzhou Shengda. The company is introducing the truck at home and abroad to satisfy urgent demands of the petroleum equipment industry.
