Simplicity and Value

Cetco’s Solid Desanders series uses centrifugal motion to cause two liquids having di¬erent specific gravities, such
as solids and water, to separate in an efficient process.

The advanced Solids Desander separates significantly more solids from water than conventional solid and water separation equipment, allowing our customers to operate under more stringent environmental standards and regulations.

The New Standard in Solid/Water Separation

Cetco’s Solids Desanders are engineered and sized to cover a wide range of capacities and applications using standard designs to provide reliability, cost eff¬ectiveness, service accessibility and shortened delivery time.

Designed to be highly efficient, compact, and durable solid/water separators, Cetco’s Solid Desanders exceed the various demands of oilfield and industrial applications throughout the world. Cetco packages Desanders with vessels or manifolds to specific engineering and manufacturing specifications.
