Sand Trap – Sand Catcher

Sand Trap/catcher is designed as per API 6A standard and used to remove sand and solid from high pressure gas well effluent to prevent erosion of downstream equipment.

Sand catchers (sand traps) are usually located between the wellhead systems and plug catchers &trash catchers. Our sand trap has a larger holding volume for solids, so dumping solids is not needed as often. It is recommended that a hydraulic choke and hydraulic valve be used on the dump outlet.
