Red Flint Sand and Gravel well pack media is specifically engineered for gravel packed wells.

 

Red Flint Sand and Gravel well pack is specifically engineered for gravel packed wells. Engineering firms and well screen manufacturers specify Red Flint because of its superior chemical and physical properties. The gravel is used for in ground wells to form a barrier between the screens and the natural deposit of the soil formation.

Red Flint Sand and Gravel well pack media is recommended by engineering firms and well screen manufacturers for its desirable physical and chemical properties.

Naturally clean Red Flint Sand and Gravel well pack media is preferred in gravel packed wells due to its superior physical and chemical properties. With low acid solubility and sub-angular shape, our well pack products are cleaned and uniform in size.

The uniformity and low acid solubility minimizes material lost in well development. The sub-angular shape aids hydraulic conductivity by reducing drawdown and improving yield.

General Properties of Red Flint Sand and Gravel Well Pack

  • Sub-angular shape and tightly controlled uniformity improves hydraulic conductivity
  • Less than 1% acid soluble impurities prevents mineral leaching deterioration
  • Washed, kiln dried, and screened to meet exacting specifications
  • Meets or exceeds AWWA A100-06 standard for water wells and ANSI/NSF Standard 61 certification for quality and purity
