What is API RP 13C (ISO 13501)?

A new physical testing and labeling procedure for shaker screens. To be API RP 13C compliant, a screen must be tested and labeled in accordance with the new recommended practice. Two tests were devised: cut point and conductance. The tests describe a screen without predicting its performance and can be performed anywhere in the world. [...]

What does the API Screen Number NOT tell us?

The API Screen Number is a single number which defines solids separation potential under specific test conditions. It does NOT define how a screen will operate on a shaker in the field as this will depend upon several other parameters such as fluid type & properties, shaker design, operating parameters, ROP, bit type, etc.

What is the D100?

a. The D100 cut point of a screen is the particle size at which no particles will pass through the screen. b. D100 is a single number determined from a prescribed laboratory procedure – the results of the procedure should yield the same value for any given screen. c. The D100 should not be compared [...]
