Synpol Filter


This new approach to solids control is designed to complement our high capacity gravity Desanders. Some wells may not need high volume sand capture capacity after initial flowback. The volume of solid returns may decrease, although most wells will still return some solids and these returns cannot be ignored.

In response to customer demand, this product was engineered to provide a long-term, cost-effective solution to allow for safe and efficient operation of sand-producing wells.

Furthermore, paired downstream of a traditional desander, SYNPOL can provide a physical barrier to assure no sand passes through the system in case of desander over-fill in slugging or heavy sand return cases. The patented technology allows for a physical barrier with an extremely high collapse pressure suitable for high or low pressure wells.
