The purpose of this research is to develop new design criteria to improve the selection of wire-wrapped screen (WWS) apertures. The study implements laboratory testing to evaluate the performance of WWS for different production scenarios.
The experimental approach consists of several sand retention tests (SRTs). Commercial mixtures are employed, covering a range of particle size distributions (PSDs) and fines content. The test implements both single-phase and multiphase flow stages as shown below.
