Oil and Gas Slicklines

slickline downhole

Le CWI GD™ – SUPA® Slicklines can handle the harshest of oil, gas, & geothermal conditions, both on-shore and off-shore. Slicklines are high-strength cables used for various downhole operations in the oil and gas industry. They typically are deployed to convey tools and equipment into wellbores without needing an expensive workover rig.  

The CWI GD™ – SUPA® Slicklines are engineered for oil, gas, and geothermal applications. Our slickline is manufactured in the USA from alloys designed to provide a continuous, weld-free, bright finish wireline available in a variety of lengths up to 40,000 feet. 

We produce corrosion-resistant lines designed to go downhole in sour and sweet environments. With eight material alternatives to choose from, our GD™-SUPA® slickline can handle harsh conditions while maintaining the performance levels you need.  

Our slickline services for precision downhole operations can be compliant with EN10204 standards when required.

Tech-Mesh™ Products

At CWI, our Tech-Mesh ™ products refers to two product lines: custom demister pads and knitted wire mesh. Both product lines cater to the demands of the oil and gas industry with strength and durability. Here is a brief explanation of both, manufactured with the excellence and reliability required for filtration applications.  

Knitted Mesh

stainless steel mesh

Our knitted wire mesh is an efficient, economical, and reliable product for filtering liquids in oil refineries, chemical processing, and a wide range of other applications. Knitted on state-of-the-art equipment under strict quality control processes, our mesh maximizes separation efficiency and minimizes pressure drop. The knitted wire mesh is made from individual wires, either interlaced or knitted together, and is very flexible.  

In oil and gas applications, knitted mesh is typically used when minimizing pressure drop is crucial. Its physical flexibility allows versatility in applications with non-standard or irregularly shaped equipment.  

Demister Pads

Demister Pad

Our custom demister pads, or mist eliminators, play a similar filtration role with a different construction. Our demister pads come in round, rectangle, ring or custom shape designs, and can be custom sized to the consumer’s needs. They can be designed as one unit or individual sections, depending on the size of the finished product. Many larger demister pads will also have top and bottom support grids. 

Demister pads filter liquid and gases effectively, removing hazardous mist often right at the top of a distillation column. Constructed from premium stainless steel, copper, or custom alloys, our custom demister pads provide consistent filtration performance in harsh conditions. 

All of our core products are produced in-house, and our finished mist eliminators are always manufactured in the USA through our Houston, Texas facility. We offer a wide range of alloys beyond traditional 300 series stainless steel, including Alloy 625 and Alloy 718. Whether you need Monel® 400 bulk mesh or a custom Nickel 200 demister pad, our knitted wire mesh products are always manufactured according to our customers’ unique specifications.

Profile/Shaped Wire

Wedge shaped wire, also known as triangular wire or V-wire, is a common choice for filtration screens. Filtration screens are made by welding lengths of shaped wire to support rods that add structure and rigidity.  

By changing the spacing between the wedges or adjusting the size of the shapes, these screens can be highly customized to meet the needs of different applications.  

Typically manufactured using 300 series stainless steel or Inconel® alloys, these heavy-duty screens are engineered to withstand the most demanding environments and conditions.

  • Stainless steel  
  • Nickel  
  • Specialty  


  • +/-0.0015” to +/-0.00025”  

Wire Diameter

  • 80mm – 18.00mm (0.031in – 0.709in)
