The Vortex Desander is a high efficiency desander designed to separate sand particles prior to entering the pump.
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 effect 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 sand in the tool and prevent the failure of the solids separation system.
- Reduces the downtime due to solids issues.
- Fewer interventions and less investment in CAPEX.
- Avoid the premature failures of the pump components
caused by the solids.
- Avoid problems such as sand cutting.
