Ceramic Proppants – Heating Resin Coated Ceramic Proppant
Solex heat exchange technology is commonly used for resin coated ceramic proppant applications. The indirect plate heat exchange technology is the preferred technology for heating (or cooling) resin coated ceramic proppants for a number of reasons: it uses up to 90% less energy, enables precise process control of the heating process and does not degrade or alter the shape of the resin coated ceramic proppant in the process.

Uses up to 90% Less Energy
The Solex heat exchange technology heats (or cools) resin coated ceramic proppant 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 Heating Ceramic Proppants
During the heat exchange process, resign coated cermamic propannts move through the Solex unit with slow and controlled velocities preventing product abrasion or degradation. This ensures that the integrity of the ceramic proppants is retained. The Solex technology ensures product quality is consistent.
Low Operating and Installation Costs for Resign Coated Ceramic Proppant 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 heating ceramic proppants. Furthermore, only a heating 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 ceramic proppant applications.
