Proper sand management begins with proper sand screen selection. Porous Metal Filters’ SinterPore® premium metal-mesh sand control screen cylinders have become a standard staple in the oil field.

Porous Metal Filters’ unique sand screen design incorporates multiple diffusion bonded layers of woven metal mesh, creating a single monolithic sand control screen that is robust and has enhanced filtration specific characteristics — the right solution to any sand control problem. Porous Metal Filters’ SinterPore® sand control screens range from the single-layer woven metal mesh to the multi-layer diffusion bonded Premium cartridges.

The SinterPore® cartridges are fit for purpose for  standalone or gravel pack applications as well as for open-hole and cased-hole environments. Porous Metal Filters’ optimal sand screen designs are critical in meeting your specific application and well conditions.
