As per API guidelines, we stores samples of proppant from every lot for a period of 12 months and data from testing is stored indefinitely.
The following tests are conducted on every metric tonn to ensure consistent quality:
— Specific gravity and bulk density
— Sieve analysis
— Crush test at 7,500 psi or 10,000 psi as appropriate for the mesh size
— Roundness and sphericity
Nika PetroTech runs the appropriate full API tests for every lot (which is 50 000 tn/mon in Russia). This full test includes all of the above (with 5,000, 7,500 and 10,000 psi crush tests).
In addition, the following is also run:
— Acid solubility
Every month Nika PetroTech tests each mesh size for:
— Conductivity and Permeability
