WILLIS, Texas -- R&M Energy Systems has unveiled the Hercules Gold Cone packing. Featuring small brass particles impregnated in and distributed throughout, the new product dissipates heat to extend packing life and keeps polished rods smooth and free of abrasive mineral buildup. The packing is ideal for corrosive applications, providing compatibility as well as excellent performance, the company says.

Additional features include:
• Capability to handle temperatures to 160° F (71° C)
• Pressure handling capabilities to 2,500 psi
• Availability in sizes from 1-1/8-in. (2.5-cm) through 1-3/4-in. (4.4-cm) to fit all polished rods
• Standard packaging in sets of four or five cones for application versatility

According to the company, Hercules Gold Cone packing can reduce maintenance costs and downtime resulting from its extended service life, control costly waste from excess leakage, and protect the wellsite environment through enhanced leakage control.
