When properly used, packing has numerous benefits, such as:

  • GFO® Packing – long lasting – never gets brittle or hard; minimum shaft wear; runs cool, even after long periods of operation; reduces problems/trouble and maintenance time
  • Garlock G-200 Graphite Packing – highly chemical resistant; withstands elevated temperatures; reduced shaft wear due to low coefficient of friction; low chloride certification
  • Aramid Filament Packing – very abrasive resistant; withstands granular environments
  • Graflon™ 1200 PTFE/Graphite Packing – combines the sealing characteristics of PTFE and graphite, both excellent sealing materials; durable, tough, highly resistant to chemicals and heat, and is self-lubricating
  • GraficBraid™, GraficBraid™ 1000W – graphic yarn, graphic yarn with Inconel® wire inserted; resilient, chemical resistant, pliable, heat resistant, thermal conductive, self lubricating, easily conformable; graphic yarn with inserted wire retains shape and configuration

Packing is used in a wide range of shaft and rotary shaft applications, including:

  • Agitators
  • Slip-type Expansion Joints
  • Mixers
  • Reciprocating Pump Rods
