The objective of The North American Frac Sand Conference 2020 will be to bring the frac sand supply chain industry together to evaluate solutions for overcoming the current market and logistical challenges of supplying frac sand to well sites. Be sure to stop by the MoistTech booth in Houston to learn how moisture control can be a huge factor in your production line. For more information on the show visit:

Frac Sand - Houston TX 3Typically, 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 IR-3000 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.
