Sand Screen Test Lab

IRIS performs testing of the sand retention behaviour of sand screens in the laboratory.

Our clients are oil and gas companies and sand screen manufacturers.

During 2009 – 2010, IRIS developed a novel way of testing the sand retention behaviour of sand screens in the laboratory. 
The IRIS/Statoil SPE paper (SPE 151346) supports critical reviews made by other authors of the various laboratory testing procedures used in the industry and confirms that interpretation of screen performance is often incorrect with these set-ups.

The new test set up was developed to enable screen testing under realistic conditions.
