SIMultra plug’s hybrid metal-elastomer seal is unique to the industry, just like the reliability it brings to plug setting, performance, and retrieval.

Eliminate adverse elastomer effects

Avoiding reliance solely on elastomer elements in the seal gives SIMultra retrievable bridge plugs not only the largest running clearance in their class but also the capability to retract to 110% of the original diameter.

The unique hybrid metal-elastomer seal prevents permanent elastomer setting and decompression—and their adverse effects on plug retrieval—while providing the integrity of full metal contact.
