Introducing Tech Seal Packer Elements By Parker

Performance Seal now proudly offers the Tech Seal line of packer elements to complement our fine line of products from the Parker Engineered Materials Group.Used between sections of oil and gas production tubing, packer elementsare fittings that prevent leakage of fuel and pressure at the joints where tubing is joined. They are used in fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, that enables gas and oil producers to tap reserves that are that are unreachable by normal extraction methods.

Applications For Tech Seal Packer Elements

Within the gas and oil industry, packer elements are useful in the following applications:

  • Eliminating surging and heading
  • Artificial/gas lift
  • Casing protection
  • Coal bed methane
  • Contamination studies
  • Dewatering
  • Geotechnical studies
  • Geothermal mining
  • Ground water development
  • Isolation packers
  • Oil and gas fracking
  • Separating multiple zones
  • Sub-surface safety control
  • FEPM (AflasĀ®), which is compatible with various base fluids when fracking fluids with high pH
  • Hydrogenated nitrile (HNBR), which offers high expansion capabilities for sealing large radial gaps and resisting extrusion in downhole applications
  • Fluorocarbon (FKM), which withstands high pressure and high temperature in downhole applications characterized by high formation temperatures and pressures that push the limits of most elastomers
  • Ethylene propylene (EPDM), which withstandssteam injection needed for efficient oil production
  • Nitrile (NBR), which offers good extrusion and proven test performance for general use in standard conditions

Packer Elements To Meet Tough Oilfield Condition

Made of elastomers compatible with the material that needs to be sealed, packer elements are designed to withstand corrosion and harsh conditions often found on the oil field. Standard materials include:

Available With Specs To Meet Field Requirements

Packer elements are offered in many standard and custom configurations, with ID sizes ranging from 1.000" to 18.000", wall thicknesses up to 1.250", and fleets that exceed 5 feet. When more than a single rubber element is needed to handle pressure and temperature in downhole applications, Parker TechSeals are available in preassembled solutions with backup systems in materials including metal, PEEK, PTFE, composite, and more.

Produced in ISO-certified facilities in North America, TechSealsTechProducts have been engineered and lab tested for performance so that they bear NORSOK M-710, API, and ISO 23936 certifications. For customers with specialized requirements, Parker will develop new compounds and designs to withstand any on-the-job requirements.
