Your Specific Industry – Example

Hydraulic fracturing, extracting natural gas through a layer of impermeable shale, is called Fracking and has significantly advanced the amount of natural gas produced in North America. Frac sand is a key component of the fracking process.  A main ingredient in the fracking fluid used in the fracking process is the frac sand. Frac sand is a special type of sand. This is because the sand grains left behind during the fracking process hold the fractures open, enabling the extraction of the natural gas. The building of frac sand facilities provides for the distribution of this sand by truck to the fracking well pads. Bringing the frac sand to the distribution facility is by railcar. It is then transferred from railcars to silos for distribution. Unloading frac sand from the silos into individual trucks is done for delivery of the sand to the well pads. Sterling Systems is a leading supplier of frac sand handling process controls and automation.  Railcar unloading, truck filling, and alarm handling are key components of frac sand handling systems.
