Available Now! The Ultra: Certified Performance in High Temperatures

Announcing our new Ultra annular design that significantly increases high temperature sealing performance compared to an industry-standard design.

The Ultra improves on the traditional insert design and is made from our proprietary FOGT elastomer to enhance the performance of the packing unit in elevated temperatures. It is designed to fit in standard annular style BOP units in oil & gas and geothermal drilling applications, and it requires lower closing pressure to activate the design.

After passing many rigorous qualification tests performed to API-16A 4th edition requirements, the annular is now available for purchase.

Tests completed include:

✓  High Temperature
✓  Low Temperature
✓  Fatigue Testing


“This patented design is a game changer,” says Robert Costolnick, Director of Pressure Control Products. “The new design allows our customers to have a temperature certified annular for their ultra high temperature applications.”

The Ultra annular is now available worldwide through global FOGT sales and service facilities.
