6 Reasons to Pneumatically Convey Frac Sand | Frac Sand Conveying FAQs
PDF Version Visit our proppant/frac sand page for more information and our video. Mechanical conveyors have been the most commonly used method to convey frac sand in production facilities across the country. Although these systems have been the historical solution to frac sand conveying, they are limited in how they solve proppant handling issues like plant flexibility, dusting, and downtime due to maintenance. Nol-Tec Systems offers an alternative solution to frac sand conveying that can address these issues: pneumatics.

Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying Details | Dense Phase Conveying
Dense phase pneumatic conveying offers many advantages for bulk materials handling. It is the typical first choice for moving abrasive materials, but is also used with great success to convey all kinds of agglomerated, friable, heavy, or blended bulk materials. However, to avail yourself of these advantages, there are certain areas of conveying system design that should be given due consideration to ensure that dense-phase conveying is your best choice. The details can make or break a successful system installation.

Dilute Phase vs Dense Phase Conveying Overview
Outline of Pneumatic Conveying Systems This article provides some basic information about pneumatic conveying system types, operation, and applications. A pneumatic conveying system transfers powders, granules, and other dry bulk materials through an enclosed horizontal or vertical conveying line. The motive force for this transfer comes from a combination of pressure differential and the flow of air (or another gas) supplied by an air mover, such as a blower or fan. By controlling the pressure or vacuum and the airflow inside the conveying line, the system can successfully convey materials.

How to Convey Sand & Silica | Conveying Silica & Sand
What Are Sand & Silica Used For? Sand is a naturally-occurring granular material that is finer than gravel, but more coarse than silt. It can have differing chemical compositions depending on local mineral sources and conditions. The most common component of sand in inland and non-tropical coastal areas is silica, usually in the form of quartz; coastal sand is commonly composed primarily of calcium carbonate. Sand has countless uses, from agriculture to glass manufacturing to hydraulic fracture drilling, or fracking, where it is known as “ frac sand ”.

How to Pneumatically Convey Various Materials in Dense Phase
Are you interested in switching to dense-phase pneumatic conveying? Or have you found that your material is difficult to convey in dense phase? Read this article for tips on how to convey carious materials in a dense phase system. Dense phase (slug-flow) pneumatic conveying can provide several benefits. The method moves material at relatively low velocity, which prevents material degradation and equipment wear. Dense-phase conveying also reduces segregation and promotes flow at lower air volumes, making it more efficient per pound of material conveyed than higher volume dilute-phase (stream-flow) conveying.

Pneumatic Batch Blending | Pneumatic Batch Blenders
PDF Version With a pneumatic blender, you can mix batches of dry bulk materials in the conical hopper of a storage vessel or dense-phase pneumatic conveying transporter rather than in a mechanical mixer, yielding real savings in time, labor, and capital equipment costs. After explaining how the pneumatic blender works, this article describes its applications and benefits and details how testing can help you select the blender for your application. Pneumatic blending in a bin or silo — that is, aerating materials with compressed air to mix them within the vessel — has been used for decades as a way to homogenize large production runs of a single material.
