We conducted API 16F wear testing, comparing part performance between a LORD packer and a competitor's packer. API 16F wear testing could not be completed to the full 50,000 cycles on the competitor’s part due to premature failure. At 22,000 wear test cycles, the competitor’s packers developed a leak, requiring an increase in the actuation pressure on the competitor’s parts. By 45,000 cycles, the competitor’s packers were leaking severely enough that testing could not be completed. The “API 16F Wear Test Actuation Pressure” chart shows the LORD packer performing consistently through test completion (red line), whereas the competitor’s part failed prior to test completion (blue line).
