Lionpak® 3302

A specialised, high performance abrasion‑resistant 'white' gland packing.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Pumps
  • Rotary equipment

Lionpak 3302 is a high performance abrasion-resistant 'white' gland packing offering minimal wear, braided from fine yarns of tough synthetic polymer fibre.

The yarns are texturised and impregnated uniformly and deeply with PTFE dispersion to a high concentration, before being braided over a central core of temperature resistant white elastomer.

A silicone-free, inert and colourless lubricant is incorporated during the manufacturing process to provide swift and easy running-in on dynamic duties.

Unlike traditional aramid-based packings which typically work at a maximum temperature +250°C (+482°F), Lionpak 3302 has a maximum operating temperature of +285°C (+545°F).

  • Kinder to shafts than traditional 'yellow' packings
  • Can eliminate unnecessary wear under adverse operating conditions
  • Excellent resistance to chemical and abrasive media
  • Resists hydrolysis - ideal for steam, water and hot aqueous solutions
  • Better thermal conductivity than most 'white' or 'yellow' packings
  • Can absorb eccentric shaft / ram actions and thermal / pressure shocks and cycling

  • Gland sealing on rotary or reciprocating pumps and valves that handle highly abrasive slurries or aggressive chemical solutions in the mineral, pulp and paper, wastewater and chemical processing industries
  • It is also recommended for water, aqueous solutions and other media in processes where a clean white, non-staining gland packing is required
  • Proves particularly effective in applications where its rubber core enables the packing to absorb the eccentric movement of shafts or rams that run out-of-true. Its construction can also provide the packing with swift recovery from thermal or pressure shocks and cycling.

Valve Stem Duties

  • Maximum operating temperature: +285°C (+545°F)
  • Minimum operating temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum system pressure: 15 MPa/150 bar (2175 psi)

Centrifugal Pumps and Rotary Equipment

  • Maximum operating temperature: +285°C (+545°F)
  • Minimum operating temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum system pressure: 2.5 MPa/25 bar (363 psi)
  • Maximum shaft speed: 20 m/s (3937 fpm)

Reciprocating Pumps and Rams

  • Maximum operating temperature: +285°C (+545°F)
  • Minimum operating temperature: -50°C (-58°F)
  • Maximum system pressure: 10 MPa/100 bar (1450 psi)
  • Maximum rod speed: 1.5 m/s (295 fpm)

  • Compatible with media in the range pH 0 -13, including steam, water, fuels, oils, solvents, acids and alkalis
  • Note: this chemical resistance is better than that of traditional aramid-based packings

  • All popular square sections from 3 mm (1/8") to 25 mm (1") 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
