30/50 Mesh

30/50-mesh premium frac sand is selected with the highest quality standards. Sourced from Midwest mines in Wonewoc formations, 30/50-mesh premium frac sand exceeds industry expectations for high-quality Northern White sand. The high resistance to crush and very low acid solubility enable 30/50-mesh premium frac sand to withstand harsh downhole conditions and maintain strength and integrity after fracture closure.

APPLICATIONS

  • Hydraulic fracturing operations
  • Operations that require proppant with premuim performance pecifications

BENEFITS

  • Ensures superior long-term conductivity due to high crush resistance
  • Minimizes fines generation due to high roundness and sphericity
  • Withstands closure stresses up to 8,000 psi

FEATURES

  • Compliance with API RP 19C and ISO 13503-2
  • Roundness and sphericity values typically greater than or equal to 0.7
  • Low acid solubility and turbidity reduce dust and fines generation
  • High silica content provides superior crush performance
