Borehole Packers

Borehole Packers

Pneumatically or hydraulically inflatable packers that incorporate one fixed and one sliding head attached to a centre shaft.
The sliding head allows the packer gland to retract about the centre shaft as it inflates.

Applications:

Permeability testing
Hydro-fracturing of formations
Monitoring well sampling
Sealing artesian flows in boreholes
Packer piezometers
Pressure grouting

Features:

Steel reinforced, or fabric reinforced, abrasion resistant glands are easily replaced in the field
Hollow centre shaft for placement of sampling and monitoring equipment or for passing water through the packer during permeability testing or hydrofracturing
Suitable for a wide variety of applications in open or cased holes
