Engineered PADs for Oil & Gas Applications
As wells continue to be drilled deeper and encounter higher pressures and temperatures than ever before, reliable tool activation is critical. Fike’s Pressure Activation Devices (PADs) are ideal solutions for downhole pressure activation, featuring:
To protect people and critical assets within the oil and gas industry, Fike offers a variety of products which are engineered to meet the application’s specific needs.
Pressure Activation Devices (PADs)
Each pressure activation device possesses unique inherent characteristics, enabling them to be used in a wide variety of downhole applications.
Hydraulic Tubing Drains
HTDs rupture discs equalize the fluid levels in tubing strings, removing the need for mechanical manipulation and limiting the frequency of stuck tubing strings.
Fike offers a variety of energetic devices that work with downhole tools from Fike OEM partners. Fike energetics are rigorously tested and proven to perform within a wide range of temperatures and pressures.
Fike offers rupture discs in nearly any size, burst pressure and material to protect any pressure-related application within the oil and gas industry.

Pressure Activation Device Technology for Downhole Applications
An alternative technology to PADs for tool activation is shear pins. However, some of the disadvantages of shear pins technology include their:
- reliance on moving mechanisms to activate, which may become stuck due to corrosion or other well conditions.
- difficulty to install and change.
- requirement for precise alignment when multiple pins are used.
