TAM unveils new swellable packer technology

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – TAM International Inc. has introduced a new swellable packer technology with a variable swell rate.

TAM said its FastSwell technology uses a proprietary process to alter the geometric design of the elastomer to provide fast, but predictable and controlled, swell rates for challenging downhole conditions currently unsuited for a swellable packer due to long swell times.

 The technology can be customized to increase or decrease the swell rate of either water-swell or oil-swell packers. The packer has been tested to 12,000 psi differential and downhole temperatures ranging from 70° to 575°F (20° to 302°C).
