Supagraf H2 is a high performance, unique combination, valve stem packing set designed for hydrogen service.
This packing solution incorporates Supagraf Premier, one of James Walker’s top-of-the-range fugitive emission control packings that has a long track record of exceptional performance in valves handling hydrocarbon liquid fuels and gases, lubricating oils or processing chemicals including hydrogen.
The performance of Supagraf Premier graphite packing rings are then enhanced by the use of precision machined carbon rings, inserted at the top and bottom of the stuffing box set and used as intermediary rings.
This product has been third party tested and is validated by James Walker for use in hydrogen service.
Supagraf H2 is designed specifically for the harsh operating conditions of all types of valves in hydrogen service where exceptional tightness, safety and extended dynamic sealing performance is required.
The product is also compatible with different blends of hydrogen and other liquid or gaseous media as well as hydrocarbons or chemicals.

Supagraf H2 combination packing set has been 3rd party tested and certified for hydrogen service. The test regime has been adapted from ISO 15848-1 standard and modified with the use of 99% hydrogen test media as opposed to ISO 15848-1 specified helium gas. The product has been tested at room temperature and to CO1 endurance class reaching class BH* leakage performance (with no adjustment).
The product has also been tested according to ISO 15848-1 standard (with helium test media) in configuration of Supagraf Premier graphite rings with single bottom stuffing box machined carbon ring, achieving class BH tightness at CO1 endurance class and temperature range from -196°C [-321°F] up to +400°C [752°F] (with no adjustment).
In addition, the stand-alone Supagraf Premier packing set has been tested and certified to:
*Note: BH volumetric leak rate used for Hydrogen gas.
Compatible with media in the range of pH 0-14 excluding strong oxidising agents. The product has negligible volatile content.
As preformed graphite rings with a single split combined with precision machined carbon rings supplied endless or split in two matched halves with cut of 45 degrees. Product made to order to suit application requirements.
