Frac Sand and Proppant Size and Shape HORIBA

Hydraulic fracturing is used in the oil and gas industry to increase the flow of oil and/or gas from a well. The producing formation is fractured open using hydraulic pressure and then proppants (propping agents) are pumped into the oil well with fracturing fluid to hold the fissures open so that the natural gas or crude oil can flow up the well.

Frac Sand Spec General Information — Frac Sand Testing

Frac sand crush testing is used to determine the crush resistance of the proppant.

Particle Size Analysis & The Frac Sand Industry

Frac sand is named by the size of the grains. The coarsest material standard for frac sand is 20/40. This means that 90 percent of the sand is fine enough to pass through a 20 mesh sieve (see sieves etc) and is coarse enough to be retained on a 40 mesh sieve. As long as your sand meets these requirements, you have 20/40 frac sand.
