Arefco have the ability to manufacture packers up to 48” diameter and currently supply most of the Oil companies using this style of equipment.
Arefco manufacture a variety of packer designs and sizes, the majority are solid with a metal ring at each end and are chemically bonded to a central rubber element, Each end ring goes through a rigorous cleaning and bonding process prior to being attached to the rubber by heat and pressure. After moulding the packers can be pressure tested where design allows. Some of the packer types are tested in excess of 2,000 psi.
Packers can also be supplied in a split design to aid assembly if the application demands it.
Most packers are manufactured in a Nitrile or Nitrile blend for maximum wear resistance and flexibility.
