Slotted plastic pipe offers a number of advantages over typical round hole perforated systems. Often angular or rounded gravels and backfills can effectively block a significant percentage of a perforated holes open area, restricting it's ability to collect. Slots are not easily plugged by these backfills allowing the superior open area of slotted pipe to lower intake velocities, reducing silting and the possibility of plugging.
PVC casing and screen offers a number of advantages over steel, it is resistant to iron bacteria and is non-conductive and is not affected by electolytic or galvanic action.
PVC is lighter and easier to handle making installation quicker, safer and cost effective.
Slotted PVC screen offers superior open area providing faster well development. Custom slotting of large diameter screen is commonly done at Titan Industries.
