Stripper packer is a device used to provide air tight seal around the coiled tubing when it is either run down the wellbore or poke out of the wellbore. The air tight seal is provided to restrict the well fluid or liquid from escaping from the casing. The seal is enabled by squeezing the rubber inserts around the tubing. Stripper packers are available in various bore sizes and pressure options. They are managed by an operator from a control room, working on hydraulic pressure mechanism.
