Optimize production potential and extend asset lifecycle management with 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens. This globally proven downhole tool offers an efficient sand control technique to a wide range of reservoir conditions delivering the longevity of sand free production to maximise asset productivity return at reduced operational risk.
Integrating technical ceramic material into a downhole sand screen system delivers:
3M Ceramic Sand Screens are recognised by the OWI as the “Most Impactful Technology” winner at the OWI 2021 Awards. Explore the potential impact on your projects with our Sand Control Assesment tool.
A 3M Ceramic Sand Screen system comprises of a flexible stack of full body ceramic rings with a V-shaped or keystone slot opening design that’s assembled on a pre-perforated base pipe and secured by endcaps with an external metallic shroud.
Thanks to the excellent properties of technical ceramics, ceramic sand screens from 3M work beyond the limits of competing sand control techniques and outlast steel screens in an extreme hardness erosion test. Our Ceramic Sand Screen Systems resist chemical attack by hot sulfuric acid, aggressive completion fluids and other corrosive chemicals in the oil and gas operations industry. See the difference.
