Reasons industrial sand producers choose C&W:
1. Service  – C&W focuses on long term relationships and will stand behind our systems.
2. Ease of Maintenance – Industrial sand plant supervisors and maintenance personnel appreciate the silo units and central systems for their easy in-line maintenance features. These features reduce costs associated with downtime and lost production.
3. Air Quality  – C&W systems are engineered to contain fugitive dust that can create unproductive working conditions and create safety hazards from airborne contamination. They also reduce “house cleaning” costs that can be very expensive over the course of a year.

Industrial sand can be very abrasive and require industrial dust collectors capable of handling the harsh environment.

C&W is well-versed in handling abrasive products and can provide a recycle option for the material to go into a proper disposal unit.  C&W can help you with your dust control solutions, contact us for more information.
