40/70 Silica Proppant
Pattison produces a 40/70 SILICA PROPPANT that meet specific completion project specifications. This proppant is perfectly spherical, quartzite sand that meets the most stringent quality specifications. Also known as Northern White, frack sand, hydro fracturing sand, geo-thermal sand, and coarse sand, Pattison’s 40/70 proppant is produced from the St. Peters Formation. Proppants produced from this formation have superior physical properties than other Northern White proppants.
Silica Proppant Performance Characteristics
Due to the performance requirements that typical hydrofracturing applications demand, a very high quality 30/50 SILICA PROPPANT is required. Stringent testing and quality assurance procedures ensure that Pattison proppants meet the highest performance specifications, and are certified by ISO & API.
How We Produce 40/70 Silica Proppant
Pattison 40/70 SILICA PROPPANT is produced in our state of the art wet processing plant. Completed in 2007 in Clayton, Iowa our plant features sophisticated disagglomerating, washing, separating, classifying, and drying equipment that yields some of the highest and most consistent 40/70 SILICA PROPPANT available anywhere in the United States.
With Silica Proppants, Age Matters
When it comes to 40/70 SILICA PROPPANT, age matters. This means that Pattison’s Ordovician St Peter Sandstone is some of the oldest and hardest material available. Due to it’s hardness and other ‘Old Stone’ properties, our 40/70 SILICA PROPPANT out performs material produced from outside of the St Peter Sandstone formation.
