Procurement Resource study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. It also offers additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (capital investment details, production cost details, economics for another plant location, dynamic cost model). In addition, the report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.
Procurement Resource’s detailed report describes the stepwise consumption of material and utilities along with a detailed process flow diagram. Furthermore, the study assesses the latest developments within the industry that might influence Silica Sand production cost, looking into capacity expansions, plant turnarounds, mergers, acquisitions, and investments.
Procurement Resource Assessment of Silica Sand Production Process:
- Silica Sand Production From Quartz Stone: This report provides a comprehensive cost evaluation of silica sand production from quartz sand. At first, the stone material goes through the process of crushing using a coarse crusher, after which the material is transported to a fine crusher through conveyor belts. This finely crushed material enters a vibrating screen to eliminate the pebbles present in the finely crushed material, which is again sent to be crushed. At last, the material is turned into the sand using a sanding machine, thereby forming silica sand.
Silica Sand (SiO2) is a type of silicon dioxide appearing as a granular material with quartz and little amounts of coal and clay primarily found in mines. It has a high hardness ratio and is very hard. The sand is present in many forms, each one with a unique composition and quality set with a chemical mine structure and silica ratio. The mineral group contains an Oxygen and Silicon mix appearing colourless in its pure state. The crystalline state of the sand is due to weathering and plankton fossilization. It has a density of g/cm3: 2.65 and a Mohs hardness of 7. It has high melting and boiling points of 3,110 °F and 4,046 °F.
The Silica Sand market is propelling due to its extensive usage across several industries, including metallurgy, glass, construction, foundry, ceramics, etc., which is driving the market’s growth. Furthermore, it is used as an aggregate in mortar and concrete in the construction industry, forming bricks and other building materials, boosting the industry’s demand. In addition, it helps create pathways or add drainage in landscaping projects that drive the market forward.
Additionally, it assists the production of moulds in the foundry industry for metal casting as they can resist elevated temperatures furthering the market’s expansion. It also finds use in forming ceramic products like tiles and pottery, improving the product’s reflectance, brightness, and colour consistency in the paints and coatings sector; filtering drinking water, processing wastewater and producing water from wells as well as in the oil and gas recovery industry which are all applications of the commodity that are bolstering the market’s demand.
