Separates 95%-99% of sand from production.
Captures and holds 400lb+ more sand.
Monitors sand volume & weight in real-time.
Sand analysis & reporting for decision making.
By truly removing more sand from production, the Defender greatly reduces erosion on production & facilities equipment, enabling operations to:
by greatly reducing non-productive time of shut-in & downtime.
by optimizing field personnel, streamlining operational footprint & reducing the costs of equipment repairs.
in production rates, revenue, and profit margins.
ENGINEERED FOR PEAK PERFORMANCE
The G2-S technology has proven to remove up to 40% more sand from production.
VAPOR-LOCK (VL) UPPER HEMISPHERE
CREATES A TEMPORARY MULTIPHASE SEPARATION.
A large cross-sectional dome shape that creates the vapor lock & temporarily forces a phase separation of the gas from the liquids in the incoming mixture.
SAND-LOCK (SL) LOWER HEMISPHERE
CAPTURES & HOLDS SAND FOR AMPLIFIED STORAGE CAPACITY.
The sand settles into the lower hemisphere where the Sand-Lock, consisting of a cross-shaped vortex breaker & anchor plate, is designed to break up & block vertical recirculation patterns in the center of the vessel & weaken hydrocyclonic suction from the bottom of the vessel.
Measured For Success with the Sand Management System (SMS)
Stored sand’s volume and weight can be monitored, trended and reported in real-time with Sandtinel’s Sand Measurement System (SMS) - resulting in better well data analysis & reporting.
Empowering key stakeholders to make informed, strategic decisions regarding current and future well operations.
The SMS’s key components include Sub Skid, Solar Panel, Load Cells, and RTU.
The sand’s volume & weight is measured and can be reviewed & analyzed in real-time, in the field, or online.
Add the Sand Measurement System (SMS) to any solution and make it fully integrated from sand separation to real-time reporting.
Today, there are hundreds of Sandtinel units serving production, completion, and facilities stakeholders operating in some of the most complex and challenging basins in the world.
Start with your vessel and build it up with important add-ons
1. SMS - Fully integrated solution, from sand separation to real-time reporting.
2. Blowdown Tank Level Switch - Alerts you when sand volume reaches its capacity
3. Level Indicator Transmitter - Sends real-time data
Safety & Logistics
4. Blowdown Tank - Adds additional sand capacity and eliminates depressurizing & opening the vessel
5. Utilidor - Protects equipment from the harsh elements
6. Catadyne Heater - Keeps essential equipment warm in colder months
7. Skid - For easy lift and transport
