Heating and Cooling Proppants

Coated frac sands, like resin coated frac sand, requires preheating or cooling during the coating process. Solex indirect plate heat exchange technology is widely used for these heat exchange processes, as it does not degrade or alter the shape of the coated frac sand. The frac sand moves through the Solex unit with slow and controlled velocities, preventing product abrasion or degradation, retaining the integrity of the coated frac sand.

Proppants used in our exchanger include:

  • Frac sands
  • Resin-coated frac sands
  • Ceramics
  • Resin-coated ceramics
  • Resin-coated proppants
