Compression Packings

The packed gland is an exceptionally reliable fluid sealing device that is simple to install and maintain. Not only is it highly versatile, but also remarkably cost effective in both plant downtime and materials - especially when compared to complex alternatives.

Compression PackingsOur constant advances in materials and lubricants, product design and manufacturing techniques, keep us at the forefront of compression packing technology.

We therefore bring you one of the widest ranges of packings to match the temperatures, pressures and speeds of your most modern fluid handling systems, and economical packings for your older plant.

Many of our packings will dramatically reduce your stockholding levels - as one carefully selected length-form product can often be used for many different valves, pumps and other fluid handling plant at your site.
