Johnson Rod Based Vee-Wire® Screens
Bilfinger Water Technologies' continuous-slot, Vee-Wire® construction of Johnson rod based screens is known around the world as the industry’s best well screen. Providing more open area, these non-plugging well screens have a tight slot tolerance, effective sand control and a lower entrance velocity.
Our manufacturing capabilities covers the full range from shallow wells to deep wells, where the collapse resistance may be achieved with the use of heavy-duty Vee-Wire®.
Bilfinger Water Technologies' specific continuous-slot construction aims to optimise flow rates, minimise clogging and help develop the water-bearing geological formations faster. It is best applied in the following situations:
- Geological formations comprised of small, fine particles
- Water wells where gravel packs will be installed
- Thin aquifers, where maximum open area is required
- Large- and small-diameter deep wells
Available for both small- and large-diameter applications, Johnson rod based screens are available in stainless steel, low carbon steel and PVC with slot sizes as small as 0.1 mm (0.004 in.) and lengths up to 12 m (40 ft.).
