Water Filtration Sand

PFS is proud to offer high grade, spherical sand that is highly compaction resistant, making it perfect for use in water well filtration and gravel pack for multiple applications. With successful water wells all over Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, and many other states, our sand has a proven track record of providing high quality filtration and infill properties.

Sand from our unique hickory deposit is known for its superior quality and a great record of performance across all industries that we service, from water filtration to frac sand supply. At PFS, we offer a wide range of mesh sizes and bagging options so customers can customize their order to perfectly fit their needs.

 

Types of Filtration

Our premium silica sand is ideal for a wide range of filtration applications, including gravel pack in wells, sand filters in pools and mass production of smaller water filters, or in large scale water filtration and circulation applications. Some examples include:

  • Pool filters for chlorine and salt pools
  • Process water and wastewater systems
  • Gravel pack for well construction
  • Industrial scale water filters for building cooling systems, municipalities and drinking water.


For large scale operations, such as industrial level water cooling systems or water purification systems, or commercial level pool filtration, you can run through a lot of sand/silica in the water filtration process.

Even a small apartment pool can run through almost 500 pounds of sand/silica through regular use, with the amount of sand/silica needed rising significantly for industrial scale applications.

What is a Gravel Pack?

A gravel pack is simply a downhole filter designed to prevent the production of unwanted formation sand and to allow the maximum flow of water. The formation sand is held in place by properly sized gravel pack sand that, in turn, is held in place with a properly sized screen, this inhibits the flow of formation sand particulates into the well reducing the water flow.

Not only is our silica an excellent alternative to more expensive Northern white silica, but we are also equipped to process and ship orders with a high level of speed and efficiency. Whether you’re looking at a large scale construction project and need solid water filtration in the form of gravel pack or want to build a new water well, we can supply the sand you need when you need it. We have some of the best quality silica sand in the Southern United States at a great value:

  • 99%+ silica quartz sand, no additives or chemicals
  • Washed, cleaned, dried and sized
