Drill Pipe Screen FAQ Guide

What is the Function of Drill Pipe Screen?

Filson Drill pipe screen, also called a drill pipe spill, is widely applied in petroleum geology drilling, and to protect the MWDS equipment. When the drilling fluid circulation, dirt can be filtered out by screen mesh in the joint. The clean drilling fluid can avoid dirt clogging the bit port.

Filson drill pipe screen is designed to clean mud for impurities directly in the well, which can greatly prevent downtime of drilling equipment. It is available for all macro-climatic regions whether in moderate or cold climate.

What is the Best Material to Use in Drill Pipe Screen?

Stainless steel offers the best experience for drill pipe screens. Stainless steel is endowed with excellent resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and high temperature. Hence it can withstand any harsh conditions, its properties alone make it worthwhile.

Filson only uses top-grade stainless steel as base material, which gives our product superior capacities to optimize your applications.

What is the Characteristics of New Type Telescopic Drill Pipe Screen?

Featured with a retractable structure of three-section, the Filson drill pipe screen is easy to transport and carry. The new design realizes simple structure, convenient use, and reliable quality, more importantly, each section can be replaced separately to meet the different requirements of applications.

Filson new type of telescopic drill pipe screen is a cost-effective and effective technical method to prevent the water hole of bit clogging and the bottom hole circulation is free.

What is the Difference of Traditional Drill Pipe Screen and New Type Drill Pipe Screen?

Traditional drill pipe screen is easy to block, which causes eroded and damage frequently and the whole drill pipe screen loses its function. What’s more, the damaged parts can not be replaced separately, which increases the overall costs. Besides, traditional drill pipe screen also has big volume and complex processing treatment, which are not easy to transport and have high maintenance and replacement costs.

Thanks to its retractable design, Filson’s new type one has a smaller volume to carry and process. When one part is damaged, it can be replaced separately to reduce maintenance costs, which also delivers a broad range of applications.

What are the Parts’ Functions of Drill Pipe Screen?
  • Screen Cap: easy to remove materials
  • Screen Cap Extension: controls turbulence of spear point
  • Spear Point: reduces cavitation situation for better abrasion resistance
  • Material Pattern: increase wash resistance
  • Flanges: easy to connect with engravings
