Your Specific Industry

If your industry is extracting natural gas through hydraulic fracturing where a layer of impermeable shale is called Fracking.  Fracking has significantly advanced the amount of natural gas produced in North America. Frac sand is a key component of the fracking process.  Frac sand handling systems and automation controls are necessary to ensure efficient delivery of sand to the well pads. A main ingredient in the fracking fluid is sand. Frac sand is a special type of sand. This is because the sand grains left behind during the fracking process hold the fractures open.  This enables the extraction of the natural gas. The building of frac sand facilities provides for the distribution of the sand by truck to the fracking well pads. Bringing the frac sand to the facility is by railcar and is then transferred from railcars to silos for distribution. Unloading frac sand from the silos into individual trucks for delivery to the well pads. Sterling Systems is a leading supplier of frac sand handling systems, process controls and plant automation for frac sand facilities.  Railcar unloading, truck filling, and alarm handling are key components of frac sand handling systems.
