Slick Type Wire Cup Packer Units

Slick Type Wire Cup Packer Units

Like all items from Global Elastomeric Products Inc., our wire cup packer units are designed with safety, durability and productivity in mind. Each unit serves as a directional packing element that provides a seal to stop communication from one zone to another. Our wire cup packer units have a strong flexible lip that automatically seals and holds pressure on the side toward which the lip is pointed.

These highly-reliable cups are available in multiple casing weights with multiple combinations of compounds and inserts. For proper installation and use, each packer cup requires a mandrel or a custom-designed tool. These packer cups can be installed on this tool as a single cup, dual cup or multiple combinations (facing up, facing down or opposing), based on the specifics of your applications.


Our versatile wire packer cups are strictly manufactured from high-quality materials that can withstand the extreme rigors of oilfield applications. Our certified standing as an ISO 9001:2015-registered company ensures that your wire packer cups are made to the highest quality standards. They've also been extensively field-tested in oilfields across the United States and around the world. We even guarantee that our American-made wire packer cup units are always free of material and manufacturing defects.


Slick Type Packer Cup Assembly

When it comes to slick type CP assembly, the slick mandrel unit is essential. The mandrel unit acts as the body of the cup and is designed to be slightly tapered or perforated, allowing it to provide a strong frictional grip. Mandrel units come in a variety of sizes and are a versatile component of the packer cup unit, which can be used for many different applications. 

Mandrels are an essential element of the packer cup unit. They provide the body structure of the cup, serving as the rod-like piece around which the cups are positioned. The mandrel is the specific piece that enables the cup to be situated in the proper direction. This directional flexibility that the mandrel helps to provide can be essential for different applications and enhances the versatility of the cups.

Our slick packer cups are specifically designed to provide extremely effective sealing that disables communication between zones. The sturdy, flexible lip of the cup holds in the pressure while the mandrel allows you to turn the cup in different directions. 

Our packer cups are available in one- to four-cup units in a variety of sizes, each of which has a corresponding mandrel size. The sizing, pressure tolerance and other essential specifications can all be customized to meet the needs of your unique application. We also have the knowledge and experience to design the cups and the mandrels to effectively work together as a unit even if your sizing needs are outside of the standard specifications.

Because we have such a robust line of integrated packer cup units, we can quickly and easily find the solutions that will work best for you. Every slick mandrel unit we provide is extremely durable, reliable and versatile, and we offer fast turnaround times so you can have the slick type packer cup you need as soon as your application requires it.

Why Using Only Quality Wire Cup Packer Units Matters

Almost everyone in the oil and gas industry is in agreement that the days of easy oil extraction are a thing of the past. As a result, a new era dominated by technical breakthroughs and strict cost efficiencies has begun. Yet through all of the recent cycles of growth and downturns in the industry, one key aspect of oil and gas exploration has remained constant: the combined importance of bringing increased safety and stability to every oilfield and rig — whether they are located onshore or offshore, in the U.S. or overseas.

According to recent industry analysis, the estimated total costs of running an offshore oil platform over a typical production lifespan of somewhere between 10 and 20 years can easily add up to over $1 billion USD. That breaks down to an average operating expense of anywhere from as little as $100,000 to possibly over $300,000 per day. What all this means is that anything that reduces risk to oil workers and their equipment is fast becoming the new gold standard of efficiency. By preventing delays and breakdowns, it ultimately supports production and, as a result, protects or even advances the company’s bottom line.

So where does the use of quality wire cup packer units come into all of this? The answer is actually front and center. Getting trained workers and the right equipment to any oilfield and/or rig is both time-consuming and oftentimes — especially in the case of offshore rigs — very expensive. That’s why, if you’re not using quality equipment, you could be putting your business and the people charged with running it in harm’s way. It’s also why deciding on Global Elastomeric Products Inc., has been serving the supply. Embury is such a smart choice for all of your packer cups, drilling machine parts and overall elastomeric rubber product needs. With decades of service to the oil industry and sales representatives with over 100 years of combined “Oil Patch” experience, we know what’s on the line when we fill your order.

By extrapolation of present statistics, total global spending by the oil and gas industry on parts, tools and equipment is expected to top $205 billion USD annually by 2020. And if that number tells us anything, it’s that having an oil and gas industry equipment supplier that can fill custom orders while keeping costs down will only be more important as time goes on. With our in-house talent and highly-skilled engineers, you get the products you want in a timely manner, making Global Elastomeric Products a true manufacturing leader for now and the future of the oil industry.
