Trans-Load Systems

Every year thousands of tons of frac sand is produced for use in the petroleum industry. Apart from the production and manufacturing process, frac sand transloading also plays an important part in the supply and availability of the raw material for manufacturing units and hydraulic processing plants.

IPS's transload facilities are designed to meet customer-specific needs. These facilities can unload from single spotted cars to unitary trains. They have a user friendly and efficient load-out system that allows for the loading-out of a truck in 4 to 5 minutes, depending on weight restrictions.
