  • What is the correct particle size range for iAVs-suitable sand?

    Posted by Admin on 29 April 2024 at 9:13 am

    The recommended particle size for is 0.4mm to 1.2mm with no silt or clay.

    Quikrete offers sand sizes as follows:

    – All-Purpose: 8-50 mesh (2.38mm-0.297mm)

    – Coarse Sand: 12-30 mesh (1.68mm-0.595mm)

    – Medium Sand: 20-50 mesh (0.841mm-0.297mm)

    – Fine Sand: 30-70 mesh (1.68mm-0.21mm)

    Although the all-purpose option may be slightly out of range, there should be no issues with using some smaller and some larger sizes. To remove finer particles, a small stainless steel mesh screener could be used at the outlet after running the system for a bit.

    It is okay to have a few particles larger than 2 mm, but avoid having particles smaller than 0.25 mm. The ideal sand should have a consistency similar to table salt or granulated sugar, with no powdery fraction or particles that could cause clogging.

    In summary, the ideal particle size range is:

    • 40% between 1-2 mm
    • 40% between 0.5-1 mm (about the size of a grain of table salt)
    • 20% between 0.25-0.5 mm

    With minimal particles outside those size ranges.
