The Most Challenging Environmental Aspect of the Oil and Gas Industry Has Been Solved by the Sand-X Beast.

Working hand in hand with industry leaders, The Thompson Group has developed the Sand X® Beast process to create environmentally friendly, safe and cost saving sand disposal. Utilizing green technology the Sand X® process restores sand to be safe to use for any application.

Sand-X Overview

How it Works

When the flowback fluids enter the Sand X, the gas pressure is released into the frac tank. The hydrocarbons, water, and sand fall into the hopper. There is a screen that catches larger pieces of debris such as plugs, etc. for observation. The mixture begins to separate and, as the sand falls through the water, any hydrocarbons on the surface of the granules are displaced and float to the top of the mixture. The liquid rises to the hopper overflow and falls into the tank.
The sand settles into the auger and, by the time it is pushed out of the top of the hopper, it is merely damp.

According to independent test data, the hydrocarbon and chloride levels are safe enough to be incorporated into the environment, eliminating the expense of sand disposal.

The Sand X® process offers the following benefits:

  • Reduces the ecological impact of sand disposal
  • Reduces fractank cleanout expenses
  • Eliminates working confined space requirements
  • Proven successful on all sands including 100 mesh sand
  • Allows reuse of water for drilling
  • Eliminates hazardous waste exposure and disposal

Frequently Asked Questions

The Sand-X Beast is capable of recirculating drilling fluids, which can help you save money on disposal, clean out, and chemicals. In addition, this tank comes with a variety of uses, which can help with space usage on the well site since you won’t have to use nearly as many frac tanks.

Operators are able to use what’s referred to as the Super Loop in order to separate gas from the flowback and send the gas to a low-pressure flare.

While not required, you will be trained by a Sand-X specialist in order to learn the ins and outs of using this system.

The Sand-X Beast separates sand, water, and oil from each other during the completions process in order to efficiently process sand and remove the need to dispose of sand after a job is done.
