The Vulcan® Drying Systems Frac Sand Drying System is custom-designed and manufactured to suit a customer's individual project needs. These drying systems consist of a correctly sized drum and a burner mounted in a concurrent configuration. Vulcan® Drying Systems Frac Sand Drying Systems are designed specifically to dry frac sands, making the material easy to transport, separate and handle.
Frac sand is fed into the rotary dryer. After passing through the dryer, the dried product is discharged to a transfer conveyor for further sorting and separation. The vapor from the process is pulled through a cyclone that is specifically designed to deal with the fine frac sand dust, as well as a baghouse which removes fine particulates from the vapor stream.
Each Vulcan® Drying Systems Frac Sand Drying System is custom-built for the client. Systems include the following components:
- Rotary Dryer
