16/30 Mesh

The 16 /30-mesh premium frac sand is selected with the highest quality standards. Sourced from Midwest mines in the Wonewoc Formation, 16/30-mesh premium frac sand exceeds industry expectations for high-quality Northern White sand. The high resistance to crush and very low acid solubility enable 16/30-mesh premium 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 5,000 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 0.7
