Holing and slotting of casing

Elmar slotted and holed liners are manufactured on specially designed multi-spindled machines that assure a high level of machining accuracy while maintaining metallurgical properties through the continuous application of coolant during the cutting process. We can deburr pipes from 2⅜- to 12-in. OD and 50-ft length with a purpose-built deburring machine. This machine can remove swarf, rust, and grease. After deburring, the pipes are given a protective coating to prevent further rust. Slot widths of 0.012 to 0.25 in. in a variety of patterns can be accommodated with a range of slot lengths to suit the requirement. Holed casing can be produced with a variety of hole patterns and pitches and with diameters from 9.5 to 25 mm.

At our facility in Westhill, Scotland, we have the capability to complete the whole screen assembly from machining of the base pipe, welding of components, and wrapping of wire through to complete inspection and assembly. Documents are maintained for customer assurance and full traceability of material and control procedures.
