Frac Sand Storage Equipment
Frac sand storage equipment has been developed by the TBM Group since 2004. This resulted in the formation of SandCastle Enterprises Inc.. The assets of which, were sold to a major oil and gas service company in late 2009. Since that time the TBM Group has continued the quest for improved frac sand storage equipment and logistics through Prop-equipment Systems Inc. (PSI) and Future Frac Storage Systems ™.[dt_divider style=”gap”/]
Frac Sand Storage Equipment Development
Due to improved technology, skill and positive results, frac jobs have grown exponentially in popularity and size since the start in 1947. Frac popularity and job size growth have increased frac sand use greatly. The volume of proppant used per stage and the number of stages per job have increased the size of frac jobs. As demand grows frac sand supply and logistics become the limiting factors. The TBM Group develops solutions and equipment for tough logistical challenges.
PropMaster ™ Mobile Silo
In order to improve frac sand logistics and reduce the footprint of ever growing frac jobs the TBM Group developed the first ever self-standing mobile silo. Resulting from years of R&D and continuous improvement the PropMaster ™ stands as the premier vertical frac sand storage unit.
Used in Canada and the U.S. the PropMaster ™ mobile silo has a proven record of performance and durability. The PropMaster ™ addresses environmental, safe work environment, efficiency and labor issues.
