Frac Sands Washing

Our sand washing experts have delivered turnkey projects for some of the world’s largest frac sand producers.

Frac Sand Washing Equipment


Our industry knowledge allows us to transform materials into the highest quality output products. Due to the modularity of our offering, we can deliver small to large-scale plants which are expandable according to future needs.

Frac sand specifications are very demanding and exact, as a result suitable sand deposits are limited across the globe. The limited availability of suitable reserves for frac sand mining coupled with growing demand ensures a high price for any producers able to meet frac sand specifications. In America the frac sand specifications are the responsibility of the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the current standard is API RP56.

Natural frac sands come from sandstones or unconsolidated deposits with high silica content. Particles must be well rounded, and relatively clean of other materials or impurities.

Fracking can be a volatile industry, so it’s important for frac sand producers to remain agile. The industry can shift its focus fast, so it is critical to ensure that operations are adaptable (and relocatable) to take advantage of opportunities. CDE’s FracLine™ system revolutionises the production of a clean, consistently in spec frac sand, and its modular design provides significant benefits for frac sand producers.

  • Maximum process efficiency – our modular system delivers cut point control maximising product yield from frac sand deposit.
  • Intelligent process integration – feeding, classification, scrubbing, sand dewatering and stacking are all included on a single machine which is factory built, pre-wired and extensively tested before delivery to site for quicker install.
  • Compact & modular design – the compact FracLine design reduces overall project costs with less civils required and reduced vehicle movements once it’s up and running. And it can fit inside a building enabling frac sand processing 24/7/365 even in extreme weather conditions – maximizing production and the return on your investment.
