Lessons learned from ambient air monitoring related to silica sand mining, processing and transport. Ambient monitoring for respirable crystalline silica on the fenceline of mines and processing facilities did not find air concentrations above the inhalation health benchmark for respirable crystalline silica.
PENTA performed services for optimizing operations for a large silica sand mining and processing facility with wet processing, fluid bed driers, sizing, grinding and packaging facilities for the supply of sand/kaolin clay to the oil/gas industry.
The new Moberly processing facility is capable of producing approximately 300,000 tonnes per annum of premium frac sand as well as a range of other highgrade silica products. Moberly offers strong expansion potential with plans for a multistage expansion currently being evaluated.
"Secondly, the processing facility is entirely closed. The dust collecting system has a total vacuum system incorporated into the process. All of the 'fines' (the fine, dust like sand) end up in a baghouse and our workforce is not exposed in any way to any kind of dangers that would be associated with handling or processing silica sand.
2 The PM emission rate of Sand Dryer 4 measured during testing conducted in 2012 was 0.012 gr/scf, 20 percent lower than the applicable emission limit for this unit accepted by U.S. Silica and memorialized in current permits for the facility. For existing sand processing equipment at the facility controlled by baghouses, the margins of
In response, MDH developed a healthbased guidance value for crystalline silica in the air and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency began conducting air monitoring for crystalline silica near silica sand facilities. Information regarding air monitoring can be found at their website: Air monitoring at Minnesota silica sand facilities.

Sep 25, 2014 · Silica Particles from Frac Sand Mining Put Tens of Thousands at Risk . The boom in natural gas and oil exploration using hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, commonly called fracking, has created a huge demand for the sand that drilling companies mix with water and toxic chemicals and inject underground to free gas and oil trapped in deep rock formations.
Silica sand is used in the hydraulic fracturing process as a proppant—a material that holds open fissures in a rock formation to allow oil and gas to escape. Due to the increased demand for proppant sand, numerous sand mining and processing facilities have been constructed in the vicinity of small communities. Silica sand contains crystalline silica, which can cause chronic health problems
