Sands Application in the Environmental Market

Industrial sand is used in the filtration of drinking water, the processing of wastewater and the production of water from wells. Uniform grain shapes and grain size distributions produce efficient filtration bed operation in removal of contaminants in both potable water and wastewater. Chemically inert, silica will not degrade or react when it comes in contact with acids, contaminants, volatile organics or solvents. Silica gravel is used as packing material in deep-water wells to increase yield from the aquifer by expanding the permeable zone around the well screen and preventing the infiltration of fine particles from the formation.

Pioneer Sands coarse grade products are sold under the Colorado Silica Sand® name and are a symbol of quality in this market. Colorado Silica Sand® is the highest quality silica sand that is inert, odorless, natural and without flat elongated grains. It is also free of silts, clay or organic impurities.

We also sell filtration sands at our other locations.
