Borehole Packers and Accessories
RST Instruments Borehole Packers are pneumatically or hydraulically inflatable packers that incorporate one fixed and one sliding head attached to a center shaft. This sliding head allows the packer gland to retract about the center shaft as it inflates. The packer heads are constructed of either plated steel or aluminum while the shaft is polished stainless steel or aluminum. The packer gland consists of a rubber membrane reinforced with either polyester fabric or steel. Packers made from steel heads, stainless steel shaft and a steel reinforced gland are suitable for medium pressure applications.
