Patent No.:  US 2017/0268322 A1



The intake consists of a specifically engineered slotted design. These slots are cut using a plasma cutter which creates smoother cut surfaces than other cutting methods. Smooth surfaces are less likely to be affected by corrosion.


The helix creates the vortex using centrifugal force, which separates the smaller solids and deposits them into the tail pipe[s] (mud joint[s]).

This improved version of the vortex sand shield was designed to withstand the high speed of the particles, avoid cuts in the tool, and the failure of the solid separation system


- Reduced the downtime due to solid issues.

- Less interventions and less investment in CAPEX.
- Stable pump parameters: Vibration, frequency, voltage and

  motor current.
- Avoid the premature failures of the pump components caused

  by the solids.

- Avoid problems such as sand cutting.

We are proud to celebrate a quarter of a century innovating in the oilfield around the world
