Lionpak® 9601

A mineral fibre packing for static sealing duties up to 1000°C (1832°F) constant.

  • High temperature
  • Static sealing
  • Valves

Lionpak 9601 is a special high-temperature compression packing for static duties.

It is manufactured from fibrous form of silica fibre with no metallic or ceramic content and impregnated with high temperature resistant additives as well as graphite based dispersion.

  • Flexible packing that adapts well to groove corners: readily forms a circular section when required
  • Ideal for application with knife edge gate valves
  • Wear resistant with dry and hot abrasive slurries
  • Graphite-based dispersion improves lubrication and also acts as a blocking agent to prevent leakage
  • Resistant to high temperatures

  • Recommended for autoclaves, converters and furnace doors. It can also be used on knife edge gate valves (valve bonnet sealing)
  • Suitable for duties with ash slurries, chemical slurries, hot air, dry gases, superheated steam and saturated steam. This product may also be suitable for use on valves and pumps in certain applications; please contact us for further details

Static Duties

  • Maximum operating temperature (constant): +1000°C (+1832°F)
  • Maximum operating temperature (intermittent): +1100°C (+2012°F)
  • Minimum temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum static pressure dependent on application, please contact us for further details

Compatible with media in the range pH 6-10.

  • All popular square sections from 3 mm (1/8") to 50 mm (2") in boxes containing 8 m (26' 3"), in coil form or on spools as detailed in the product datasheet
  • Also supplied as split preformed rings and sets
  • Please refer to the product datasheet for spool ordering information

  • Average diameter of the mineral fibre used is over 6 μm (236 μin), which is considered non-hazardous to health, no protection for breathing, eye, hand or body is required by the World Health Organisation or European Union for the material’s normal handling, storage or use.
  • For further details please contact us to request a copy of our Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
  • Note that normal ceramic fibres, as often used in the manufacture of very high temperature compression packings, are around 3 μm (118 μin) in diameter, these much finer fibres are considered hazardous to health, with WHO and EU restrictions applied to the products that contain them.
