Inflatable Packers are a very versatile "down hole" tool used increasingly for a wide variety of applications: Water Well, Coal Bed Methane, Oil & Gas, Mining. Water Operating at pressures up to 10,000 psi, typical packer applications include grouting, swaging, water permeability testing, hydro-fracking and plugging.
Standard Wireline Permeability System ("SWiPS®") use only water for inflation and not requiring a fixed wire line. SWiPS® dramatically simplifies drilling operations by eliminating the need for separate or dedicated inflation equipment. Water enables higher pressure ratings and therefore greater depth capability with up to 100 bar (1500 psi) differential pressure capacity, plus a more positive and reliable seal than gas alternatives.
SWiPS® is fully compatible with industry standard drilling systems
- Available in N, H or P sizes
- Optional range of shear pin sizes and pressures
- Emergency deflation system
- Low or high pressure versions • Single or straddle systems.
