Deepwater drilling contractors have always faced extensive downtime for the replacement of elastomeric seals on their floating rigs. This has translated into lost time, lost profits, and the potential for environmental damage. LORD Corporation’s wear-resistant elastomers can improve the performance of seals, resulting in improved uptimes and reduced rig maintenance.
Telescopic Joint (TJ) Packers seal against the inner barrel of the slip joint. Our expertise in rubber-tometal bonding, and process and quality controls, ensure each part is manufactured consistently, with a strong bond. This attention to detail, coupled with our elastomeric form lation capabilities, makes LORD TJ packers the reliable choice for rig contractors. More reliable seals allow longer drilling without interruption, eliminating the need to change out packers in the middle of a well.
