tension-set packer

1. n. [Well Completions]
A type of packer that is set by applying tension to the running string. These packers are less common than compression-set packers due to the potential difficulties associated with retrieval. However, in applications where there is insufficient string weight to set a compression packer, a tension packer is a useful option.
