Tendeka’s Filtrex remedial sand control system is designed to address the issue of sand failure in existing wells. A simple intervention based system, it provides the flexibility to be installed thru-tubing and can combine sand clean-out as part of the installation process.
The unique filter mechanism employed by Filtrex is a multi-layer open cell matrix polymer (OCMP), with a range of sizes to cover broad range of applications. The OCMP is run in hole compressed within a sleeve and is deployed along with an integral anchor system. Once set, the filter media can expand by up to 75% to conform with the wellbore ID.
Filtrex is designed to retain sand whilst allowing fluid flow through the filter mechanism with little impact. Once installed, the tool requires no further intervention but can be easily retrieved at a later date if desired.
