  1. Here in West Texas, frac sand is everywhere; it's common to see a few bushels dumped on the side of the road, where some idiot trucker decided to clean out the bottom lines on their trailer. Most of the sand arrives already mixed with additives, but some vendors have clean sand available - washed, dried and in bulk. Fairmount Santrol has a location here in town, (I actually worked there years ago, when it was a different company) and I thought their "BEST SAND SILICA SAND" would be a good fit for an iAVs sand bed. FM-0557_BestSand_SilicaSand_Sheet.pdf Frac sand was mentioned in the Ravnis Sand Bed post a while back, and Gary Donaldson suggested that the rounded grains might work well at a smaller particle size since it is so precisely graded. I had been looking at the 1020 and 1220 as candidates for this "sub-angular" sand, but now I'm wondering if a finer grade would be better suited to this application. Any Recommendations?
