Sand Separators / Desanders - Fabrication Services

TransTech Fabrication offers top-quality sand removal systems to address sand and sediment content within produced oil and gas streams.  Our sand separators (desanders) improve overall separation performance, protect valuable downstream equipment from blockages and erosion, maintain production throughput—and avoid costly production shutdowns.

While desanders are most frequently required for new wells and wells that are reaching maturity, undesirable sand and sediments can occur throughout production for a variety of reasons including increased water production, an increase in the gas-oil ratio (from gas injection for example), low pressure production and as a result of well clean up.

Our expertly engineered sand separators efficiently facilitate separation and removal of sand and other sediments from your hydrocarbon production stream—with solutions to address your specific challenges.

Consistently meeting the most rigorous standards of industry, our expertly engineered and fabricated sand separation solutions can be configured to address a wide range of applications.

We offer standard configurations or our experienced team of fabrication experts will design and fabricate your sand separator to your exact specifications.  Sand separator vessels are available in both slant-mount and space-saving vertical-mount configurations that can be integrated into the most complex piping schemes.

Our heavy-duty, all-weather pressure vessels are built for robust operation in rugged operating environments and are designed for continuous and high-volume sand and sediment removal.  Sand separators offer virtually no liquid loss, are able to maintain steady system pressure and contain no moving parts—offering years of reliable performance.

Sand Removal Applications

Desanders are available in vertical and slant-mount orientation for the following applications:

  • Sand removal from the well-stream, including well startup and cleanup operations
  • Shale gas completions
  • Sand removal for separators
  • Sand removal for pump protection
  • Bulk, large particle separation (>100 microns)
  • Desanding of single or multiphase streams
  • Small particle separation from water streams (<50 microns)
  • Sand removal from sand slurry streams (< 10 microns)
  • Sand cleaning systems
