DryJect will soon be able to inject non-kiln-dried sand through its machines.

This technology will be available through select regional service centers on a limited basis by October 2019 and will be available through most of the company’s centers in the late winter/spring of 2020.

Through extensive research and development, DryJect has engineered a special hopper configuration that includes rotating agitation and staged screening with vibratory assistance to assure effective flow of anywhere from slightly damp sand to wet sand, said the company.

Field testing revealed that the damp and/or wet sand applied through this new design went out at about a 90 percent rate by volume as compared to kiln-dried sand. The 10 percent discrepancy is largely from that same percentage (10 percent) of holes not receiving any sand. About 90 percent of the holes with sand were filled just as full as the kiln-dried process.

For comparison, a 3-by-2-inch spacing at an approximate depth of 4 inches with kiln-dried sand will deliver 5.6 cubic feet of sand per 1,000 square feet. Using non-kiln-dried sand (damp to wet) will deliver 5 cubic feet, according to DryJect.
