The application of basic physics and fluid dynamics principals allows produced fluids and gas to pass through the device while virtually all solid particles collect on the bottom.
Specialized Desanders function effectively over a broad range of flowrates. Sized to work with high initial rates, they are also able to handle the higher gas phase velocities that develop as production continues and flow pressures drop. This mechanism allows the same equipment to remain in service despite changing conditions.
SDI’s compact Desander, designed for oil and gas wells producing frac sand and formation sand, allows wells to flow under sand-producing conditions that would otherwise damage production equipment. Our desanders help prevent:
