IAC Completes First In-basin Resin Coating Facilities

Monahans, TX Facility to Improve Oil Recovery

Mission, KS – February 2019 – Industrial Accessories Company (IAC) has completed the first in-basin Resin Coating Facility in Monahans, TX. This Resin Coating Facility allows for enhanced oil recovery while significantly reducing the historically high costs of transportation.

In order to complete this in-basin Resin Coating Facility, IAC applied its industry leading team of experts to address resin plant construction, dryer performance, dry plant controls, loadout methodology, dust control, respiratory silica mitigation, wet plant operation, Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) of Frac Sand Facilities.

“It requires a total team effort to combine the technical expertise and needs of the customer with the engineering, construction and controls capability of IAC. This teamwork ensures the facility design and operation exceeds the needs of the customer’s patented formulations and product throughput requirements.” Stated Bob Carter, President of IAC.

Resin Coating has played a very important part in hydraulic fracturing in the Oil and Gas industry. With the recent industry focus on cost control when completing a new oil well, less resin was utilized in hydraulic fracturing due to the high cost of transportation. In-Basin resin coating facilities reduce resin logistics costs and allow resin coating to be utilized when drilling, thus enhancing oil recovery.

IAC’s depth of engineering and controls expertise, combined with prior employee experience in building and operating resin coating facilities, allows for a true team effort with the customer. IAC’s team understood the needs of the customer and could translate that into a state-of-the-art processing facility.

IAC gained its experience as an EPC contractor by providing engineered solutions, facility design, procurement, and construction services into thousands of companies for over 30 years. Each of these products fit within an engineered solution. IAC is the most experienced EPC serving the Frac Sand industry with equipment supplied or work completed on 45 commissioned plants.

IAC is currently commissioning a 3 million ton frac sand plant in Oklahoma, a 1.5 million ton facility in Texas, and starting construction on a 1.5 million ton facility in a new south east basin. IAC provides commissioning, startup and optimization services to our customers to ensure success beyond initial turnover of the equipment.

Bob Carter is scheduled to present the next generation of Plant Optimization within the Frac Sand and Resin Coatings Industry to a large audience at the Frac Sand Industry Update North American Frac Sand Conference February 26 in Houston Texas.
