Sand is loaded into the Arrows Up bins either at a terminal or rail-to-truck transload facility. An industry leading 55,900 lbs. of sand can be loaded into each bin.
The bins are transported by truck from terminal to the well pad on trailers. No special equipment is required and each bin has nearly 10% more capacity than a pneumatic trailer.
Bins are unloaded at the well pad and either stacked for storage or put on top the riser system for immediate use. The unload process takes just 5 minutes.
Bins are loaded onto the riser and proppant is gravity fed into the blender. No conveyors. Virtually no dust. Up to 33,000 lbs. of sand can be discharged per minute.
Loaded bins can be stacked and stored on the well pad so proppant is available when it is needed. Up to 10 times more frac sand can be stored in the same footprint of a pneumatic truck and trailer.
