Quality Control

The plant has a fully equipped laboratory on site. Our product quality is closely monitored using modern analytical techniques including X-Ray Fluorescence. During production periods samples are analysed twice daily to determine the following:

* Moisture content

* Grain size

* Iron level 

In addition the moisture content is measured during loading to assure that the product is adequately drained before dispatch to the warehouse at Runcorn.

Lochaline Silica Sand is very white and has a very low iron content.
