Screen Conductance

Conductance, measured in kilodarcies per millimeter (kD/mm), defines a Newtonian fluid’s ability to flow through a unit area of screen in a laminar flow regime under prescribed test conditions. All other factors being equal the screen with the higher conductance number should process more flow.

API Screen Number

API Screen Number is determined using a specific test procedure (asset out in API RP 13C).The test a specifically graded sample of Aluminum Oxide which is passed through a stack of sieves including the test sieve  and mounted on a Tyler Ro-Tap®.  The method determines the D100 cut point of the test screen and relates [...]
