    Work Item: ASTM WK42600 - New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Dynamic Image Analysis of Natural Sand, Resin Coated Sand, Ceramic and other manufactured materials used as Proppants

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.26 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Scope

    This test method covers the determination of particle size distribution by Dynamic Imaging of Natural Sand, Resin Coated Sand, Ceramic and other manufactured materials used as Proppants in hydraulic fracturing and gravel packing operations.

    The method is currently being used in the Natural Sand, Resin Coated Sand, Ceramic and Proppants industry for Fracturing. The test method will guide users into a common test which can be compared from location to location.
