This is a Mechanical set double grip retrievable production packer for medium to high Pressure applications.
This Packer is a retrievable, double- grip compression or tension set production packer that can be left in tension, compression, or in a neutral position, and will hold pressure from above or below.
A large internal bypass reduces the swabbing effect during run-in and retrieval, and closes when the packer is set. When the packer is released, the bypass opens first, allowing the pressure to equalize before the upper slips are released.
The Packer allows unrestricted flow and passage of full gauge wire line tools and accessories with an unrestricted ID, making it ideal for zone isolation injection and production applications.
It can be set with production tubing in tension, compression or neutral maximizing effectiveness in shallow wells or fiber glass tubing operation. The packer’s mechanical lock-set action closes an internal bypass and allows application of pressure above or below the packer. This packer also features a upper-slip releasing system that reduces the force required to release the packer. A non-directional slip is released first, making it easier to release the other slips. The packer is released by a ¼ right-hand turn at the tool, followed by straight pickup of the production tubing.
