Proper Sand Management Begins With Proper Screen Selection.

PMF’s SinterPore ® premium metal-mesh sand control screen cylinders have become a standard staple in the oil field.

PMF’s unique 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.

PMF’s 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. PMF’s optimal screen designs are critical in meeting your specific application and well conditions.
