River Sands produced a custom crushed quartz filter media which met the special grading of less than 0.1% of particles with a size greater than 3.55mm.
How we did it
To achieve this custom media production, River Sands commissioned additional production facilities to ensure the production schedule was adhered to. A quality plan was also established, which included inspection and testing of the raw material and production. In addition to our in-house testing, external independent testing was conducted to ensure the material met the tight specifications.
The project received 770 semi-trailers carrying 2.4 tonne bulk bags of the crushed quartz filter media in accordance with the strict timeframe. To ensure the quality of the product during storage and transit, the filter media was packaged into polypropylene bulk bags and covered with a protective plastic bag to protect the finished product from the elements.
