Qualifying Frac Sand Resources Using Cutting Edge Technology

Webinar Description

Natural proppants are evaluated per the API/ISO standards. These standards rely on techniques that include manual sieving, which has been used for centuries. Join Tom Gapinske of Summit Environmental and HORIBA Scientific for a discussion on how the CAMSIZER can be used as a modern tool for prospecting and evaluating sand characteristics for raw in-feed of proppant use. By direct measurement of material properties, resource development, operations sequencing, process decisions, and valuation considerations are improved as material traits are entered into a geo-database.  

Topics covered include:

  • Sample preparation and handling
  • Data correlation to API 19C sieving and roundness/sphericity requirements
  • Using particle size distribution information as decision tools for planning
  • Using particle size data to "fingerprint" materials
