Sand Production

Sand production can pose serious challenges in oil and gas production, leading to equipment damage, reduced productivity, and increased maintenance costs. ClampOn’s sand detectors utilize advanced ultrasonic technology to detect sand particles and provide real-time data, allowing operators to take proactive measures to mitigate potential issues. By continuously monitoring sand production the operator will have precise information to optimize production rates and ensure the integrity of their wells, thereby maximizing productivity while minimizing operational risk.
