ArrMaz will launch their new SandTec coating technology at the 4th Annual Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference, September 24 and 25 in San Antonio, Texas. SandTec, a product ArrMaz developed in cooperation with Schlumberger, is an effective coating technology that reduces silica dust generation during the transfer of sand.
“With pressing regulations that are expected to get even tighter, we recognized the need for a new and innovative solution for greater silica dust reduction. We worked with Schlumberger to create SandTec to significantly reduce silica dust during sand transfer,” said Dave Keselica, President and CEO of ArrMaz. “In addition to improved product performance, our customers are increasingly seeking sustainable solutions and we are proud to offer SandTec which is biodegradable and biorenewable.”
As an alternative to mechanical systems which present handling safety risks, take up valuable real estate at a hydraulic fracturing sites, are difficult to mobilize and remove and require regular maintenance, SandTec provides superior dust control performance, is easy to implement and provides protection from dust generation and proppant attrition at all sand transfer points along the entire supply chain. The benefit of SandTec is its ability to reduce silica dust whenever sand is transferred – from initial point of treatment to the well head. SandTec has been successfully tested at a number of hydraulic fracturing locations and has shown the ability to reduce silica dust levels below PEL action levels with no adverse effect on performance.
ArrMaz has been a leader in dust control coating technology for over 40 years, providing technology and application expertise to its clients around the globe. ArrMaz combined its coating technology and experience with Schlumberger’s knowledge of hydraulic fracturing to develop a unique product for reducing silica dust generation.
ArrMaz is proud to be a Sponsor of the 4th Annual Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference. Organized to assist sand suppliers, E & P companies, storage providers, equipment suppliers and other companies improve their supply chain operations, the conference will feature various topics of interest for the oil and gas industry.
ArrMaz will host roundtable discussions Friday, September 25, 9:30am to 11:30am, reviewing the pros and cons of different technologies for frac sand dust control and ways for companies to improve operations with SandTec. They will also be located a booth #11 for anyone wanting to stop by and discuss one-on-one the benefits of SandTec.
