3M™ Ceramic Thru-Tubing Sand Screens

Erosion-resistant 3M™ Ceramic Thru-Tubing Sand Screens are proven to deliver high performance sand control in a variety of applications, from mature fields to well interventions where conventional metallic sand control systems have failed.

  • Increased well life-cycle longevity helps lower capital expenditures and increase production
  • Drop-in technology offering quick and long-lasting reestablishment of sand free production
  • Easy deployment through existing production tubing helps reduce HS&E and operational risk while improving return on investment
  • The exceptional hardness of 3M™ Silicon Carbide maximizes repeatable and reliable erosion protection at sand face
  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Excellent thermal properties, including thermal resistance and coefficient of thermal elongation, compared to conventional metal screens
  • Easy deployment via wireline/slickline, coiled tubing or conventional rig system
  • Modular construction system allows for length flexibility, easy operational planning and short delivery times

3M™ Ceramic Stand-alone Sand Screens are designed to deliver high performance sand control in new wells and workover applications, both in unconsolidated formations and where proppant flowback poses a risk.

  • Increased well life-cycle longevity helps lower capital expenditures and increase production
  • The exceptional hardness of 3M™ Silicon Carbide directly addresses the root cause of failures commonly seen with conventional metallic sand control systems, offering repeatable and reliable erosion protection at the sand face.
  • Helps reduce HS&E and operational risk while improving return on equity
  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Excellent thermal properties, including thermal resistance and coefficient of thermal elongation, compared to conventional metal screens
  • Easy deployment via wireline/slickline, coiled tubing or conventional rig system
  • Modular construction system allows for length flexibility, easy operational planning and short delivery times
  • Optimized design encourages a natural sand pack formation around the ceramic screen without compromising productivity
