Johnson Screens is one of the largest manufacturers of stainless steel water well screens in the world. With a high open area, allowing for better access to the entire formation around the screen; fines and drilling fluid are removed quickly and completely, resulting in a better well development. The continuous Vee-Wire® slot design allows for lower entrance velocity of the water, reducing encrustation rates. The slot design also resists plugging and prevents sand from damaging pumps. The high open area of the Vee-Wire well screen allows for water to enter the well freely, resulting in minimal drawdown and less energy usage by a pump.
