Thermanite®-High Temperature Sealing Material
Rubberatkins’ Thermanite® sealing material was specifically developed for high temperature applications and has proven effective in the containment of superheated steam such as Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage and cyclic steam stimulation.
Steam injection has posed significant challenges to elastomeric seals over the years, with conventional seals failing early in the steam injection cycle resulting in less than desired optimal oil recovery.
Steam injected in conventional slotted liner wells disperses unevenly, with effective heating near the heel but poor heating at the toe of the well.
The Thermanite cups and packing elements ensure optimal heat distribution and minimal temperature loss across the full length of the pipe with zero loss of steam from the injector and producer wells. This provides an increase in efficiency and leads to greater oil production.
Thermanite® provides a sealing solution for harsh conditions where temperatures can reach 600F and provides resistance to sour gas and crude oil.
