Graphite

Graphite

Packing made from Flexible Graphite yarns are good for higher temperature services. These low friction packings also dissipate heat quickly so that less water needs to be used in wet pump operations. Graphite packings can be lubricated with graphite dispersions to improve lubricity. Capabile of handling shaft speeds of 4000 to 4800 feet per minute and up to 500 psi in rotary applications.

FEATURES
  • -325F TO 850F in oxidizing applications
  • Up to 1200F in steam
  • Up to 500 psi in pumps
  • Up to 10,000 psi in valve stems
  • Up to 4,000 feet per minute shaft speeds
 
BENEFITS
  • Low friction for energy savings
  • Goof for abrasives
  • Good chemical resistance
  • High tensile strengths
  • For both valves and pumps
