Using the cross braiding system, K49 is manufactured from a PTFE yarn with non-migratory graphite impregnation. The combination of the PTFE and graphite provides both effective lubrication and thermal conductivity.

Services

A general purpose packing that can be used on all service applications throughout the plant.

Typical Applications

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-240°C - 280°C

Sliding Velocity20 m/s
pH Range0 - 14

K54S/F/H

Construction

Using the KLINGER®-Lock cross braiding system, K54 is manufactured from virgin PTFE yarn and PTFE lubricant. Additional lubrication is optional depending on the process requirements.

Services

An excellent choice for plant wide use especially when a clean, non-contaminating packing is required with a very high degree of chemical resistance. Can be used in virtually all media including strong acids and alkalis. K54 is supplied as 3 options:

Typical Applications

*Maximum values – temperature, pH and speed should not be combined in any one application without careful consideration. Common sense balancing factors are always wise.

**Static applications – pressure range may vary depending on sliding velocity and shaft action.
