Slurry Packing Applications

Browse our range of mechanical gland packing best suited for slurry applications.

K20 - Doulon® Lubricated

Construction

Using the KLINGER®-Lock braiding system, K20 is manufactured from a combination of top quality synthetic yarns to provide an economical solution for general purpose rotary sealing applications. The Doulon® lubricant is used extensively in slurry applications making K20 an effective, light slurry mechanical packing.

Services

For uses in light slurry applications where gland service is reliable.

Typical Applications

  • Light slurries
  • Process applications
  • Light abrasive duties
  • General service pumps and valves

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-10°C - 175°C
Pressure Range 0 - 15 Bar
Sliding Velocity12 m/s
pH Range4 - 10

K4313 - Aramid, Graphite & PTFE

Construction

Using the KLINGER®-Lock cross braiding system, K4313 is manufactured from a combination of yellow aramid yarn and PTFE graphite yarn. The aramid corners provide exceptional wear resistance while the PTFE/graphite acts as a sealer lubricator.

Services

A good all round slurry packing for more acidic applications.

Typical Applications

  • Underflow pumps
  • Process slurries
  • Acid mine dewatering
  • Reciprocating pumps

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-10°C - 260°C
Pressure Range0 - 30 Bar
Sliding Velocity20 m/s
pH Range 2 - 12

K25 - PTFE Lubricated

Construction

Using the KLINGER®-Lock cross braiding system, K25 is manufactured from an aramid yarn to provide a highly abrasion resistant mechanical packing that performs well at high pressure. The PTFE lubricant provides a clean option where contamination of the product must be kept to a minimum.

Services

For uses in all slurry and high pressure applications.

Typical Applications

  • Tailings pump
  • Reciprocating pump
  • Refiners

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-30°C - 260°C
Pressure Range 0 - 100 Bar**
Sliding Velocity15 m/s
pH Range 2 - 12

K7302DL/K7302 - Doulon®/PTFE Lubricated

Construction

Using the KLINGER®-Lock cross braiding system, K7302DL is manufactured from a combination of virgin textured continuous fibres, fully impregnated with our proprietary Doulon® blended oils. Special lubricating grease provides low wear break in properties.

Services

Highly abrasion resistant, it is well suited for heavy duty applications pumping heavy slurries and abrasives in the mining industry.

K7302DL is also available as a PTFE lubricated variant, specifically K7302, for clean service applications.

Typical Applications

  • Underflow pumps
  • Process slurries
  • Tailings pumps
  • Slurries

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-10°C - 260°C
Pressure Range0 - 30 Bar
Sliding Velocity16 m/s
pH Range2 - 12

*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.
