Best premium carbon packing option covering the widest range of application and operating conditions thus simplifying selection and reducing inventory requirements. Style 98 is well suited for challenging process conditions, when several are happening at the same time (Temperature, speed, friction, load, harsh media, etc.). Manufactured from high purity staple fiber, this most conformable carbon packing, makes it easy to install and adjust quickly to minimize downtime and shorten break-in period. Yarns are individually coated with high temperature, non-petroleum-based graphite blocking agent and lubricant, ensuring uniformity of coverage. They are then dried prior to braiding to thoroughly remove unwanted moisture. Its high thermal conductivity and ideal lubrification helps the process run cooler and packing last longer.

  • Overview

Features and Benefits:

  • Suitable for the widest range of applications and operating conditions simplifying packing selection, lowering chance of costly mistakes and reducing inventory.
  • Most comformable carbon packing making it easy to install, adjust quickly, minimizing downtime followed with a shorter break-in period
  • Low coefficient of friction limits shaft wear, improves equipment life resulting in reduced maintenance costs and less worries
  • High thermal conductivity leads to process running cooler and packing lasting longer
  • Good resistance to abrasion will maintain sealing performance and running stability in harsh conditions (Temperature, speed, friction, load, harsh media...)
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low chloride certification available

Typical Applications:

  • For multiple challenging operating conditions in rotational equipment
  • Can also be used in valves and for static sealing into various industries and processes
