Reduce Packing Shrinkage
Product Announcement from Palmetto, Inc.
Style 1030AF is designed for a wide variety of rotating and
oscillating equipment including pumps, mixers, agitators
Style 1030AF is braided from Palmetto exclusive
Quadrasyn™ composite containing Kynol®/Aramid and
heavily impregnated with our newly-developed
Impregloid™ solid lubricant system. Unlike conventional
packings, style 1030AF does not employ a liquid lubricant,
thus reducing packing shrinkage and the resulting need
for constant gland adjustment.
Because of its unique fiber and lubricant, 1030AF's sealability
is exceptionally high, allowing the use of lighter gland
pressure to achieve the same degree of sealing found in
conventional packings. Lighter gland pressure results in
lower packing pressure against the shaft or sleeve, causing
a substantial decrease in frictional drag, frictional heat
and wear on both shaft and packing. This leads to extended
packing life, reduced fluid loss (less leak-off), lower downtime
and increased efficiency (machinery runs cooler with
reduced energy consumption).
Style 1030AF is recommended for general service in water,
oils, brines, solvents, and mild acids and alkalis.
Composite (4) yarns with graphite. Our most recommended general service packing. Can also be used in valves.
