HOUSTON -- TAM International has introduced the FREECAP GT swellable packer for steam injection, open-hole geothermal, and hot wells. The FREECAP GT water-swellable elastomer swells in wells with downhole temperatures up to 575° F (302° C) and pressure differentials over 2,000 psi (138 bar).

The FREECAP GT packer was developed specifically to meet the annular isolation needs of operators who use steam injection for heavy oil recovery. The elastomer base compound of the FREECAP GT swellable packer maintains its annular seal during pipe movements associated with temperature increases and decreases during steam injection operations.
