Value Delivered

Southern Industrial Constructors (SIC) installed major equipment and pipe systems for a ceramic proppant plant.

For the first of four production lines, we provided mechanical installation during Phase I and electrical for Phase III. The client kept the project under close scrutiny, requiring us to deliver the best possible price, a high level of safety, high quality, and on-time delivery.

Self-performing all installation work to ASME B31.3 requirements, our team delivered the work on-time and within budget.

Client Objectives

The client sought to construct a new ceramic proppant plant due to high product demand. This facility manufactures an activated clay used to fracture the ground’s subsurface at oil wells for increased extraction.


SIC self-performed the installation of process equipment, process ductwork, and over 35,000 feet of process piping. Owner-supplied process equipment included:

  • Baghouses
  • Pumps
  • Vessels
  • Agitators
  • Belt- and air-supported conveyors
  • Heat exchangers
  • Blowers
  • Various skid-mounted process components

Additionally, we provided piping for the project. Carbon steel pipe was prefabricated and painted off-site to expedite production time.

Client Background

The client is a global industrial minerals company, with core competencies in mining, processing, logistics and material science.
