Hydraulic fracturing utilizes a large quantity of sand. Delivering and handling the sand on site can lead to generation of fugitive dust and respirable crystalline silica. Equipment relying on pneumatic handling of the sand creates the highest concentrations of dust and silica.
In this white paper you will learn:
- Which integrated delivery solution and material handling system can significantly reduce dust generation, decreases employee exposure to dust and respirable crystalline silica.
- What systems deliver sand all the way to the blender hopper with only a minimal release of dust as sand enters the hopper.
- How you can satisfy the engineering controls requirements under the OSHA silica rule, and significantly reduce the number of employees that may need additional reduction to exposure by utilizing respiratory protection.
