Hydraulic fracturing and block caving is a highly demanding process and requires equipment to be efficient, effective and most of all, have increased longevity in the field. RIPE and our agents Mixer (Chile) Ltda have been working together since 2008 to supply longer lasting inflatable packers for block caving procedures in South America.  Developed and rigorously tested with NATA certified equipment this packer completed over 84 single inflations to 12,000psi (83MPa) without rupture or rubber delamination in controlled conditions. 

RIPE personnel were invited inside one of the largest copper mines in the world to see where our high pressure packers are being used, a truly remarkable sight.
