Frac Sand – Cooling & Heating Resin Coated Frac Sands
Coated frac sands, like resin coated frac sand require preheating or cooling during the coating process. Solex heat exchange technology is commonly used for these heat exchange processes. The indirect plate heat exchange technology by Solex is the preferred technology for cooling or heating resin coated frac sands for a number of reasons: is uses up to 90% less energy, enables precise process control of the cooling or heating process and does not degrade or alter the shape of the coated frac sand in the process.

Uses up to 90% Less Energy
The Solex heat exchange technology cools or heats resin coated frac sands indirectly, without the use of air. This highly efficient method of heat exchange uses up to 90% less energy than technology that require large volumes of air.
Compare the energy savings.
Product Integrity is Maintained While Cooling Resin Coated Frac Sands
During the heat exchange process, frac sand moves through the Solex unit with slow and controlled velocities preventing product abrasion or degradation. This ensures that the integrity of the coated frac sand is retained. The Solex technology ensures product quality is consistent.
Low Operating and Installation Costs for Frac Sand Applications
The Solex heat exchanger is designed to operate without any moving parts, offering simple and easy maintenance and years of low cost and reliable operation when cooling or heating resin coated frac sands. Furthermore, only a cooling or heating source is required, limiting the installation requirements and costs.
The vertical configuration gives the Solex heat exchanger a small installation footprint, making it an ideal choice for coated frac sand applications.
