New Type-U Style Stripper Packer Design Available

Introducing the new and improved 7” Type-U style 2 7/8” Stripper Packer Design to our Pressure Control line of products. The packer, designed to fit a 7” Type-U style BOP, features several design improvements that significantly increase product performance and reliability.


The 7” Type-U style 2 7/8” Stripper Packer incorporates a new, more robust molded-in locking capability for the insert, and improved retention that requires less torque to install. The new design also lessens the chance of stripping installation screws or losing the insert downhole during operations.


FO&GT Stripper Packers are made with proprietary, abrasion-resistant elastomers and can be combined with a variety of advanced thermoplastic stripper insert materials that prolong product lifespan and offer superior performance while running or retrieving tooling strings during drilling or servicing operations.
