An industry leader in designing, engineering, and manufacturing fully automatic transmissions, Allison Transmission’s® commitment to the oil and gas market is evident through the 9832 Oil Field Series (OFS) transmission for fracking applications.
Available through Western Branch Diesel, a member of the Indel Power Group, this lightweight and compact transmission design can be easily integrated into existing rigs. The 5th generation controls provide prognostics, such as oil-life monitoring, filter-life monitoring, and an active oil level gauge, intended to assist with monitoring and scheduling preventive maintenance, with less downtime.
Also included are features such as the Torsional Measuring Diagnostic (TMD), converter overheat protection, pressure test mode, quick to neutral, and shift energy management. The 9832 OFS is known for its reliability and durability in a market with ever increasing duty cycles.
“Allison is absolutely committed to the oil and gas market and has invested in resources specific for the O&G market. In recent years that’s been done through direct hires, facilities, and technology,” says Jill Massonne, Director, Global Off-Highway Sales, Allison Transmission. “This includes improvements to the overall robustness of the 9832 OFS, which were put into production in May 2019, and the recent release of our TMD to help operators detect potentially damaging torsional vibration both up and downstream of the transmission that could lead to rig damage.”
Western Branch Diesel will service all Allison transmissions. The company places a high value on continued training and education for their technicians, which allows for quick diagnosis and repair of engines and transmissions. Parts are readily available through their stocked parts department. Genuine parts maximize performance, prolong the life of your equipment, and meet today’s strict requirements.
