No matter how remote a wellpad, our Mobile Sand Silo System increases well completion efficiency while reducing truck demurrage, lowering costs, reducing silica dust on site and creating safer pad-level operations.
Increased Storage Capacity, Smaller Footprint
The standard Solaris Mobile Sand Silo System is a six-silo system that provides 2.5 million pounds of well site proppant storage in the footprint of two flatbed trailers. Solaris' six-silo system contains three times the on-site sand storage capacity in half the space of a conventional SandKing system. Our system's unique design allows us to tailor its size and configuration in 1.25 million pound (3-silo) increments to meet the specific needs of every frac job. Our 12-silo system provides 5 million pounds of proppant storage and can deliver sand at an average rate of 23,000 pounds per minute. In every configuration, the Solaris Mobile Sand Silo System leads the industry in optimizing well site footprint efficiency.
More Frac Stages, Faster Completion Times
Our system allows up to 24 frac sand trucks to simultaneously unload proppant into six silos. Greater unloading capacity means our customers never have to shut down operations to wait on sand. Increased storage capacity enables our customers to pump more proppant per stage and complete approximately 50% more frac stages per day. Solaris’ well site system can reduce completion times by an average of three days per well.
Increased Mobility, Easy Setup
The Solaris Mobile Sand Silo System was designed to be highly mobile and easy to rig up and down on site. Silos are erected and lowered using our patented transport trailers. The standard system includes six sand silos, two base units and a central conveyor. It requires nine truckloads for transport, and our entire system be rigged up or down in less than three hours. Like all Solaris cargo, our transport trailers meet Department of Transportation oversize-load requirements. This enables us to move the silo system on all highways, small access roads and even dirt service roads.
Truck Demurrage Reduction
Well site truck demurrage is a costly issue for operators and pressure pumpers. The Solaris Mobile Sand Silo System relieves demurrage better than any other well site sand storage solution. Our system's increased storage capacity and its ability to simultaneously load and unload silos improves frac sand truck flow and reduces idle truck time.
The Solaris Mobile Sand Silo System provides several HS&E benefits to our customers and the communities where we operate.
Safety begins with reducing the number of workers on an active wellpad. Reducing personnel on a wellpad during operations reduces traffic on site and makes for safer, more organized wellpads. Our PLC-based monitoring and operating technology removes the need to have visual monitoring of each sand storage vessel, thereby reducing the number of technicians required at a given well site. Our system only requires one technician to operate the entire system, whereas conventional equipment can require up to six on-site technicians.
Additionally, our Mobile Sand Silo System features an all-enclosed dual belt proppant delivery system, as well as stationary dust filtrations on top of each individual silo. These features significantly reduce the presence of free-floating silica dust on location. Finally, we equip each silo with a 56,000 lumens industrial grade LED lighting system that points directly downward. This lighting system creates a safer work environment during 24-hour operations, eliminates the need for additional lighting on site and reduces light pollution visible in surrounding communities.
