Well Head Sand / Guard Filter


Our Well Head Sand Filter unit is designed to remove sand and other solid particles from well effluent to protect your down stream equipment. It is located right after the well flow head and consists of frame mounted vessels with telescopic lifting support for filter replacement and interconnecting piping with by-pass and drain. The slot tubes are composed of a surface profile that is spirally wrapped around axial support profiles and attached to each other by resistance welding. These filter elements have the unique advantages of being accurate with narrow slot openings and perfect roundness.

The Well Head Guard Filter unit is a last guard filter that is placed at the end of the process stream, just before the fluid is discharged or ready for re-use.
