Frac Sand

Typically, the frac sand is mined, washed, screened and stored in piles for supply of various grades.  The sand needs to be dried to the required moisture content before it can be sold or further processed to add a resin or alcohol coating. 

Dryers are much more efficient when the input moisture content is consistent. In reality, the moisture content of the sand entering the dryer varies constantly. Typical sand stockpiles can vary from 2%-8% moisture. This variation in the stockpile sand results in heating inadequacies wasting energy, money and out of spec frac sand.


MoistTech Corp. has a solution with their IR3000 series moisture measurement and control gauges. Using the 3000 Series sensors, we can rapidly control the drying system resulting in quality spec sand without wasting time, energy and money. Our quality sensors are designed for the harshest of installations. Simple Plug and Play mounting 4”-12” above the moving product we can measure with a repeatability of 0.1% moisture or better.

Installation of the sensor is easy and can be in numerous locations depending on your need: Primary Screen, Sump Pump, Dewatering Screen, Dryer Infeed, Dryer Dump, Belt Filter, Press, Discarded Solids, Screw, Belt, and Pipeline.
