operator placing bags on valve bag filling machines

These valve bag filling machines are used to fill 50 Lb. paper valve bags with different types of high-quality silica sand.  After filling, bags are conveyed to an automatic palletizer that stacks the bags on a pallet.

This type of silica sand is a high-quality round and sub-round silica sand with mesh sizes ranging between 8×16 and 100.  It has many uses including:

  • turf sand used for infill to protect artificial turf and increase its life expectancy
  • roofing sand for specialty roofing tiles, flooring titles, and colored grout
  • building and industrial sands as an ideal base for construction, concrete, bricks, foundry, and flooring
  • water filtration sand used in wells, filters, and other water fixtures
  • glass sand for large quantity glass production
  • oil and gas hydraulic fracturing sand
