Lower Emissions without Stalling Performance with Idle Management Technology

Part of ProFrac’s ongoing efforts to increase our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts is the Engine Standby Controller (ESC) powered by EKU Power Drives.

The ESC replaces existing hydraulic start and wet kits on frac units to enable automatic power down during idling. This automatic power-down decreases the carbon footprint by up to 388 metrics tons and eliminates 80% of idle time.
