This large frac sand processing & transload operations company in North America was looking for a tightly sealed industrial bucket elevator to move frac sand at 200 tons per hour.
Sweet evaluated the capacity expectations, sealing requirements and available space for this equipment and recommended the following Sweet® material handling equipment:
Industrial Centrifugal Discharge High Capacity Belt Bucket Elevator. We designed the following added features into the bucket elevators specifically to meet the needs of processing frac sand – unique bucket configuration; sturdy liner for reduced wear, tear and maintenance; high temp gasket, seals, pulley lagging and belting used on inside and outside of elevator for improved material handling; and self-cleaning wing boot pulley with tapered bushings and easy access dual boot clean-out. Source Energy agreed to purchase the recommended Sweet equipment and added this bucket elevator to their other existing 9 bucket elevators at their facilities throughout North America.
