Reduce Packing Shrinkage-Image

Style 1030AF is designed for a wide variety of rotating and

oscillating equipment including pumps, mixers, agitators

and blenders.

Style 1030AF is braided from Palmetto exclusive

Quadrasyn™ composite containing KynolĀ®/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.
