What Factors Do You Consider When Selecting A Johnson Screen?

In the selection of a Johnson screen, the following factors are important:

High Mechanical Strength

Your Johnson screen selection should have the capacity to resist the tensile forces resulting from its own weight during installation.

Additionally, it shouldn’t succumb to resulting radial compressive forces.

Corrosion Resistance

While the quality of water is crucial, it is not the only element.

Corrosion can develop when the materials you utilize are incompatible with the area of application of the Johnson screen.

Slot Size Selection

The slot size of your Johnson screen should provide a sufficient open area.

Where you have a very small slot size, you easily experience blockage comparatively particles can infiltrate a very large size.

Pressure Drop And Flow Rates

The water velocity as it ascends inside the screen should not exceed 1.5 meters per second.

Alternatively, the water velocity of the through-slot should not exceed 3cm/sec.

Consequently, the pressure drop when compared to friction losses is modest as the flow ascends in the screen.

Gravel Pack Selection

You can develop fine and inconsistent material naturally, while a filter pack is best for coarse and consistent material.

Typically, when at least two thirds of the particles are less than 0.75mm, a filter pack is preferable.

Furthermore, the screen slot retains ninety percent of the filter pack.

Collapse Strength

Johnson screens have to be tolerant to natural formation pressure as well as other multiple radial pressures.

When considering the collapse strength of Johnson screens, you consider the dimensions of the wire and the available shapes.

What Are Vee-Wire Johnson Screens?

Vee-Wire Johnson screens provide exceptional structural strength with V-shaped openings.

These openings permit only a pair of contact points with gravel minimizing blockage and easier cleaning.

V-Wire Johnson Screens

In this case, the liquid drains through the slots with the particles settling to the bottom.

You employ 316L stainless steel in the construction of 120° sieve bend boxes with single, double, and triple screen units available. Sight doors allow you to keep an eye on the flow.

The process flow in the 120° sieve bend boxes allows equal distribution through nozzles. This design extends the life of the Johnson screen by up to 30%.

You can employ the 120° sieve bend boxes in Johnson screens in applications involving separation of liquid-solid.

You also find these equipment essential in the removal of fibre from starch and food processing such as wet corn milling.

Can You Make Johnson Screen For 120o Sieve Bend Boxes?


The percentage of the open area of the Johnson screen determines its screening ability.

When you employ Johnson screens with 120° sieve bend boxes, you achieve smaller wire profiles with an increased open surface.

You can have wires as thin as 0.5 mm and as thick as 0.25 mm when employing looped wire and welded construction.

The smaller size and weight of the display minimizes the danger of harm.

You can employ Johnson Screens with 120° sieve bend screens in both static and vibratory assemblies.

  • Johnson screens’ true cost to plant operators is low thanks to improved operating efficiency, longer service life, and less maintenance requirements.
What Material Do You Employ In Making Johnson Screens?

You find many Johnson screens constructed from stainless steel. Common variants employed include:

SAE 304

You find this is the most prevalent type of stainless steel. The primary non-iron elements in the steel are chromium, about twenty percent, and nickel, about ten percent.

SAE 304 is a stainless steel that is austenitic. It is frequently used because it is easy to mould into various shapes and has a stronger corrosion resistance than normal steel.

SAE 304L

After SAE 304, SAE 316L grade stainless steel is the second most prevalent austenitic stainless steel. Alongside iron, the most common alloying components are chromium (18%), nickel (12%), and molybdenum (3%).

You also find minor amounts of silicon, phosphorus, and sulfur (1%) present.

The inclusion of molybdenum gives stronger corrosion resistance than 304 from localized corrosive attack by chlorides and reducing acids.

SAE 904L

Also, an austenitic steel, inclusion of molybdenum gives it improved resistance to localized chloride attack and greater resistance to reducing acids.

Its copper composition gives it blank corrosion resistance to sulphuric acid concentrations compared to 316L.

SAE is also more resistant to cracking resulting from chloride stress corrosion due to its high alloying concentration.

It has little carbon amounts making it resistant to welding sensitization and inhibits intergranular corrosion.

Why Is Sand Control Important When Using Johnson Screen?

Economic considerations resulting from extra work when working with Johnson screens in wells has put a spotlight to sand control.

Sand control is central to the reliability of Johnson screen production and thus productivity.

If unregulated, sand can cause catastrophic and infantile failure of Johnson screen equipment. When sand bridges form in the channel, an obstruction of flow is bound to happen.

Consequently, casing and lining failure can follow resulting from compaction or attrition of the formation.

Sand control allows you to prevent such challenges in addition to managing and dealing with sand formations.
