Western Minerals-Braking Sand for Locomotives

Western Minerals has been providing specialist sands and minerals since 1998. 10/18 sand has always been used as a filtration sand in the water industry as well as Braking Sand in the railway industry. Having supplied the water industry with over 60,000 tonnes of filtration sand over the years it is logical that we should offer the railway sector the same service.
