TAM will custom-wrap a client’s premium pipe in a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility using the ideal elastomer for the specific application.
TAM's FastSwell® technology, part of the FREECAP® swellable packer product line, provides a fast, controlled swell time in slow swell conditions where conventional elastomers on the market underperform. Through continued product improvement TAM has developed the FastSwell system to enhance the swellable technology into heavy oil and to improve performance in the high salinity low temperature environment. The FastSwell system allows any of TAM’s oil or water swellable elastomers to be used in all environments. This technology reduces production delays for well operators working in low bottom hole temperatures because FastSwell packers allow hydraulic fracturing operations and completion activities to commence faster than standard elastomer chemistry will allow. Like all TAM elastomers, this system does not rely on protective coatings to prevent premature swelling during the trip in the hole. Reliable prediction of swell times is designed into the numerous compounds and packer designs developed specifically for the various well environments found in global operations.
