Style No. Temperature (Centigrade) Service Recommendation
'A' steam
280°C An asbestos proofed semi-metallic packing with strips of white metal intermittent layers embedded.Used on steam expansion glands, marine engines, compressors, pumps, winches and hoists. A special high pressure medium temperature packing for ships and ship building industry, sugar mills, etc.
Metaflex A
560°C Aluminium foil, crimpled under mechanical process with high grade lubricants, sealed in layers and folds built around asbestos or non-asbestos rovings. The packing lacks resilence but permits compressibility. Used for high peripheral speeds on rotary crude oil pumps,petroleum distillates, steam compressors, turbines, hot oil valves, brine, hydrocarbons etc. Shafts should be of 500 brinell hardness or over.
Metaflex L
300°C A soft white metal foil anti-frictional packing similar in construction as above for high peripheral speed. The packing is soft enough to present the shaft with a bearing alloy that reduces scoring. Recommended for fuel and crude oil, fresh or salt water refrigerator pumps, air compressors, abrasives, crystallizing or congealing liquids such as sugar, asphalt and medium temperature slurries. It is also used as anti extrusion rings in combination with regular braided soft packings.
C Ammonia
130°C A soft flexible laminated proofed fabric packing impregnated with lubricants which reduce friction and shaft wear to a minimum. Used extensively in ammonia and refrigerating pumps, compressors and water service.
130°C A fine fabric composition precision packing with a lip section for automatic self sealing service on accumulators, press rams, cranes and reciprocating rods under heavy duty hydraulic application.
Auto Lip Metallic
130°C A packing similar in construction as above but with white metal pegs embedded on rod surface increasing bearing property. Not suited for non-ferrous soft metal rods.
130°C A proofed fabric packing with synthetic compounds to resist service conditions of oils, petroleum distillates, solvents and hydrocarbons.
