The IE Thermal Packer is a CT Thermal Packer with an Internal Expansion (IE) Joint. This packer is a double-grip retrievable packer designed for steam injection/production. This packer’s design is based on our highly successful ASI-X Packer.
This packer features a double-grip hold down system capable of holding pressure from above and below. This feature allows the packer to maintain pack-off and prevent movement of the packing element without having the packer in tension or compression. The double-grip feature allows the packer to be ideally suited for huff and puff operations as well as continuous steam injection.
This packer is equipped with high temperature elements and wire mesh backups to prevent extrusion for service up to 450° F (an element package for 650° F is also available).
