A highly specialised compression packing used for crucible lid seals at higher temperatures.
TorrLid 297 is a highly specialised product that features a resilient, hollow-centred elastomeric core that resists higher temperatures than the ethylene-propylene used in TorrLid 162B. The core is over-braided with a jacket of filament glass yarns, and the exterior surface is then coated with a proprietary graphite dispersion.
This well-proven product is used as a vacuum lid seal for crucibles containing molten aluminium. It is particularly popular with aluminium plants in the southern hemisphere.
Manufactured to order, in a wide variety of sections and lengths, to meet customer specific requirements.
Our 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.
