Every Solution Starts with a Challenge
Ours came from a client - an oil & gas producer. The challenge was straight forward:
“How can we design a surface sand control solution that actually worked – not plugged, clogged, and carried over sand?"
For us, we firmly believed this challenge’s opportunity laid at the core of the vessel – as it is here where performance is truly tested, and where competitive edge truly lies.
That's When Sandtinel was Borne
We set out to design and create a technologically advanced alternative with the sole purpose of continuously elevating particle separation to whole new levels of performance. Performance that we hoped would ultimately shift the industry landscape.
The Shift Began in 2012...
With the invention of the Vapor Lock Platform Technology otherwise known as the VL-TEK™.
The VL-TEK™ is a patented, multi-phase separation technology found at the core of every vessel we design and engineer, and is fundamental to every generation of technology we conceive of.
It’s Proven to Truly Remove More Sand
The VL-TEK™ creates a vapor lock & temporarily forces a phase separation of the gas from the liquids in the incoming mixture. This key feature is what distinguishes the VL-TEK™ from its competitors which gives users an edge in particle separation & erosion mitigation.
Its ﬁlter-less design enables operators to remove sand in minutes, while still producing, without ever being exposed, just turn the valve and ship the sand and they are off to the next well in minutes - eliminating non-productive time of:
- cleaning plugged ﬁlters
- raking sand out
We're Continuously Pushing the Limits in Particle Separation
Leveraging the power of computational ﬂuid dynamics (CFD), we work closely with our customers to better understand evolving fracing techniques & technologies and their impact on ﬂuid & particle behavior in order to continuously design & engineer tailored sand control solutions on the cutting edge of performance for the industry's evolving fracs & extreme well conditions.
