OIL & GAS PROPPANTS
Our sand proppants are not only compatible with all hydraulic fracturing chemicals, but are of pure natural silica. This provides the advantage of obtaining both hardness and elasticity at the same time; meaning, our sands will not break up when repeatedly pounded by force when compared to ceramic proppants that are designed to be with a very rigid and hardened surface - accepting no tolerance.
Our wide range of sizes varying from 16 to 140 mesh are certified by PropTester Inc. for meeting and exceeding API RP-19C specifications for turbidity, acid solubility, and crush resistance. Furthermore, our high-quality Krumbein factors (roundness and sphericity) help establish and maintain the optimum down-hole porosity and permeability; and thus, fracture conductivity, which is critical to delivering the highest possible production rates over the life of the well.
GLASS MANUFACTURING PRODUCTS
Silica sand is essential to optimal glass production: the higher the purity of the sand, the more control you have over the strength, clarity, and color of the final product. Our extensive sand processing experience delivers consistent and predictable product chemistry so you can produce batches with limited variability.
At SIDCO Sands we understand that acquiring stringent physical and chemical properties is critical to the process, as poor quality sand can result in glass defects, so we invest significant resources in quality control of our sand operations with extensive testing done to maintain consistency in composition, which is an advantage for most end use applications.
MEDIA FILTRATION SAND
WATER & SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS
At SIDCO Sands, we offer water filtration media and gravel for wastewater systems, surface water and groundwater treatment that can be used in both personal and industrial applications. These processes are delicate, and require consistent precision,
which is why we guarantee uniform chemistries, particle size distributions and performance attributes in our materials.
Clean water and waste management are essential to a functioning society, which is why our goal is to support the organizations that make it happen.
