SandCan’s frac sand storage and unloading technology makes the logistics involved from quarry to well site more efficient. The patent-pending SandCan™ is a unique diamond-shaped closed hopper attached within a 20’ common size intermodal container frame. The SandCan is Lloyds Registry and CSC safety certified. It is presently configured with two round 20-inch loading hatches for conventional top loading and one hydraulically actuated slide hatch in the bottom. The SandCan is designed to hold up to 48,000 pounds of frac sand / frac proppants and can be loaded at “the source” and can transport, store and dispense the material without the need to conduct various transloadings at each logistics step maintaining the quality of the proppant (no proppant degradation). SandCan unloads its frac sand via gravity in less than five minutes. SandCan's efficiencies lead to more volume, less waiting time and a lower cost for the same time period and current operations.
