CWI is a world leader in manufacturing high quality round and profiled well screen wire. Well screen wire is a welded stainless steel structure that is primarily used for media filtering, separation, and retention. It’s constructed of V-shaped surface profiles that are resistance welded to support profiles. The slot aperture through which the filtrate passes is formed by the distance between the surface profiles, which is precisely controlled.
The oil and gas industry demands filtration screens that can withstand the rigors of challenging work conditions. We have the capability to accurately, consistently, and precisely manufacture wedge and triangular wire in a broad range of materials including traditional 300 series stainless steel, in addition to other high-strength alloys. Whether small spaces are required to capture contaminants and particles, or large spaces are required to handle large volumes of liquid, we can produce profiled wire to satisfy those requirements.
All our profiles are manufactured on specialist equipment designed and built in-house with each line having in-line laser measuring – guaranteeing dimensional accuracy. Our ability to manufacture the tooling on-site ensures consistency but also offers our customers the opportunity to develop complex or demanding requirements. With well screen wire manufacturing in the UK – USA – CANADA – we can service your requirements where ever you are!
