Sand Separators / Desanders Fabrication


TransTech offers custom fabricated sand removal systems to address sand and sediment content within produced oil and gas streams.  Our sand separators/desanders improve overall separation performance, protect valuable downstream equipment from blockages and erosion, and maintain production throughput—to help you avoid costly production shutdowns.

While desanders are most frequently required for new wells and wells that are reaching maturity, undesirable sand and sediments can occur throughout production for a variety of reasons including increased water production, an increase in the gas-oil ratio (from gas injection for example), low pressure production and as a result of well clean up.

Our expertly engineered sand separators efficiently facilitate separation and removal of sand and other sediments from your hydrocarbon production stream—with solutions to address your specific challenges,  


Consistently meeting the most rigorous standards of industry, our sand separation solutions can be configured to address a wide range of applications. Sand separator vessels are available in both slant-mount and space-saving vertical-mount configurations that can be integrated into the most complex piping schemes.

Our heavy-duty, all-weather pressure vessels are built for robust operation in rugged operating environments and are designed for continuous and high-volume sand and sediment removal.  Sand separators offer virtually no liquid loss, are able to maintain steady system pressure and contain no moving parts—offering years of reliable performance.

FREE ASME Pressure Vessel Material Analysis - MAWP - Max Allowable Working Pressure Guidance

FREE Preliminary Vessel Material Analysis

Without the right data to optimize your vessel design, it's easy to miscalculate design pressure by overcompensating for MAWP.  This can lead to incorrectly sized vessels and other  issues including unnecessary costs, underperforming assets—and disappointing ROI,

Let our AMSE vessel design experts assist you with a FREE preliminary material analysis!  We'll help you determine the right material grade & thickness for your pressure rating for optimal vessel performance, often leading to:

  • Reduced overall vessel weight—and cost
  • More economical constructability
  • More!
