PVC Well Screen FAQ Guide

What Factors of A Quality PVC Well Screen?

The best PVC well screen needs to satisfy some design criteria and functional standards. There are as following:

  • A large open area
  • Clog-free slot openings
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Collapse resistance and sturdy structure
  • Easy to install and handle
  • Low possibility of sediment building up
  • Outstanding sand control property
What Types of Wells are There?

What Types of Wells are There

There are three types of wells: bored or shallow wells, consolidated wells, and unconsolidated wells. Each one enjoys unique characteristics.

  • Bored/Shallow wells: usually 100 feet deep or less
  • Consolidated Wells: usually 250 to 30 feet and in the natural rock formation
  • Unconsolidated wells: mainly formed by soil, clay, sand, and other easily collapsible materials.
What are the Main Materials for Well Construction?

Casing: to prevent collapse the most common casings are PVC pipe, galvanized steel, etc.

Grout: a sealant to fill the gaps around the well, in order to protect wells from contaminants, and it is usually made of cement, concrete.

Well screen: a filtration to block gravel and sand while allowing the passage of water, and the most and popular material is PVC.

Gravel pack: around the well screen to help further filtration while adding stability to the well.

How Long Does A Well Screen Last?

Depending on different materials, the service life is also different. Such as carbon steel well screens can last almost 25 years, and PVC types can last up to 70 years.

How To Choose the Right Slot Size and Sieve?

How To Choose the Right Slot Size and Sieve

The proper well screen size is a significant step to improve the productivity of the well. First, the right velocity should not exceed 1/10 of a foot per second. The proper velocity can be calculated by dividing the GPM of the well yield by the open area.

The proper slot size is designed upon the formation of samples. Filson offers services like sand analysis of formation materials, which may help you a lot.
