Terex Washing Systems to Showcase FracStac


Terex Washing Systems (TWS) is gearing up for another exclusive event, the official launch of the world’s first modular frac plant, a new innovative modular, container design-based machine that will provide “the ideal solution for frac sand processing and other industrial sands, once again setting TWS apart from its competitors,” the company said.Fracstac-400

The global dealer and customer event will mark the first official showcase of the AggreSand 206 at a quarry site in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Frac sand is a fast-growing industry and TWS’s attendance at the Frac Sand Insider show in Pittsburgh at the end of 2014, was critical in terms of acquiring further research on the market, meeting with industry specialists and introducing the new product, the company said. The event provided the ideal platform for TWS to present this new concept to attendees demonstrating how this solution would be beneficial for them. With the plant now fully designed, TWS are excited to officially launch it and are optimistic at the prospects that lie ahead.

Sean Loughran, director of TWS, commented “The use of high quality ‘frac’ sand in the process of oil and gas extraction has seen significant growth in recent years, especially in North America. With no signs of this trend abating, despite falling oil prices, coupled with the spread of this activity across the globe in the coming years, we believe this presents an exciting opportunity for TWS particularly with the announcement of our new product, the FracStac. This truly modular plant allows customers to produce up to three grades of frac sand using proven technology and state of the art controls. Considering the extremely positive feedback we have received from customers and industry experts to date, I am confident this machine will be a game-changer in the frac-sand industry”
