Wedge wire screen is a welded structure with V-shaped profile wire welded to support ribs. It combines superior weld strengths & precision slot tolerances. The distance between two neighboring wires mainly depends on the formation and sand size. Continuous slots allows for high production and no-clogging. Appropriate slot spacing is a vital element in selection an appropriate sand screen. It is widely used in water, oil and gas wells.
V shaped wire screen can be used as standalone or as outer jacket for wire wrapped pipe based screen or pre-packed sand screen. Keystone shaped slots provides free flow and optimize sand control.
?Material: AISI304/AISI316L stainless steel wire or high strength carbon steel wire;
?Inside diameter: 2”, 3”, 4”, 5”, 6” & 8”;
?Minimum slot opening: 0.05mm;
?Profile wire width: 1.5mm to 3.7mm;
?Support rib width: 2.3mm to 3.7mm.
Feature & Advantage:
?Precision and uniform slot spacing;
?High open area;
?Resist plugging and prevent sand from damaging pumps;
?Minimum drawdown and less energy usage by a pump;
?Minimum pressure drop.
