When raw sand is use as a proppant in Hydraulic Fracturing a wellhead, the sand's surface contaminants will imped the flow of Material, (Hydraulic Fracturing is also know as Fracking or Frac). If the Sand is Ultrasonically Cleaned prior to installation, the surface contaminants have been removed, thus the differential pressure drop will be lower and the will produce a higher volume of Material. Some suppliers coat the dirty sand with a resin to keep the microscopic particles from plugging the Fracked Rock formations. Ultrasonically Cleaning the sand is a low cost way of removing this gangue material thus increasing well production rates. The above photographs show sand samples Before and After Ultrasonic Cleaning of Jordan complex sandstone, (ultrasonic exposure time less than 0.7 seconds @ 175 GPM and 25% Solids). Note how the Ultrasonic Cleaning Process is effective in removing clays and slimes encasing the individual sand particles. Ultrasonic Cleaning with just water (no additives) is very effective in reducing the Turbidity to acceptable levels. Ultrasonic Cleaning is the answer to attaining a higher quality product with a lower production cost.
We have a selection of standard products with various sized reactors and acoustic power. We offer rental equipment for laboratory research and pilot-scale operations. Each equipment type has been refined to optimize material flow and processing conditions for the task at hand. We also offer the ability to engineer and manufacture high volume production systems to any power level and size required. We also can build custom reactors according to your specifications.
Processing applications include: dispersion, deagglomeration, nanoparticle dispersion, crystallization, particle pre-wetting, dispersion and reduction, mixing, waste water processing, high purity chemical processing, sonochemical processing and mineral processing.Ultrasonic Processing Systems including flat plate and dual-frequency resonators and reactors. We use flow through and batch processing. Wastewater treatment,sand processing, sand processing & fracking, sand processing Ottawa White or Northern White, tar sand processing, wastewater treatment for fracturing known as fracking, cell bacteria and microbe destruction, environmental remediation, process intensification mineral processing, soil washing, ballast water treatment, hazardous waste treatment, coal and ash separating, enhancement of reaction kinetics, micro mixing, nanodispersion, particle pre-wetting, dispersion and reduction fluxless soldering, sonochemical processing, sonocrystallization are some of the applications.
