12/20 Mesh

The 12 /20-mesh premium frac sand is selected with the highest quality standards.  Sourced from Midwest mines in the Wonewoc Formation, 12/20-mesh premium frac sand exceeds industry expectations for highquality Northern White sand. The high resistance to crush and very low acid solubility enable 12/20-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 premium performance specifications

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 4,000 psi
  • Reduces dust and fines generation via low acid solubility and frac sand turbidity
  • Provides superior crush performance due to high silica content

FEATURES

  • Compliance with API Standard 19C
  • Roundness and sphericity values typically greater than or equal to 0.8
