Elastomers are crucial in securing wells and at the very heart of every Cameron BOP. Indeed, they’re one of the things that make the Cameron difference. Our Brookshire facility manufactures elastomer products such as ram and annular packers, tailoring them to meet exacting customer specifications and industry regulations.
And we start with what’s inside—the very formulation of each elastomer. Our research and development laboratory tests proprietary compounds to provide durable and reliable sealing under a wide range of temperatures, pressures, and hydrogen sulfide environments and that are compatible with the various fluids used in drilling and completions.
Manufacturing starts with mixing the elastomer, while metal components are prepared. We combine these elements in specialized presses designed to accommodate the various sizes and types of seals.
We test samples of every elastomer and thoroughly inspect each finished product as part of our quality control process—qualifying them to meet or exceed industry standards, including API Spec 16A fourth edition. Our elastomer sealing technology lab provides a one-of-a-kind facility to test elastomer performance in a full-sized BOP, simulating any field environment.
This is the Cameron difference—it’s what’s inside that counts.
