ENERGY RECOVERY, INC., S...

1. A system, comprising:a hydraulic fracturing system, comprising:
a plurality of rotary isobaric pressure exchangers (IPXs), wherein each rotary isobaric pressure exchanger (IPX) of the plurality of rotary IPXs is configured to exchange pressures between a first fluid and a second fluid, wherein the first fluid comprises a proppant-free fluid, and the second fluid comprises a proppant-laden fluid; and
a manifold trailer coupled to the plurality of rotary IPXs, wherein the manifold trailer comprises:
a high pressure inlet manifold coupled to the plurality of rotary IPXs, wherein the high pressure inlet manifold is configured to route the first fluid at high pressure to the plurality of rotary IPXs;
a low pressure outlet manifold coupled to the plurality of rotary IPXs, wherein the low pressure outlet manifold is configured to receive the first fluid at low pressure from the plurality of rotary IPXs;
a low pressure inlet manifold coupled to the plurality of rotary IPXs, wherein the low pressure inlet manifold is configured to route the second fluid at low pressure to the plurality of rotary IPXs; and
a high pressure outlet manifold coupled to the plurality of rotary IPXs, wherein the high pressure outlet manifold is configured to receive the second fluid at high pressure from the plurality of rotary IPXs.
