SYNTHETIC FIBRE YARNS

These compression packings are manufactured from man-made fibers such as Acrylic, Aramid, Ceramic, Glass filament, Polyimide and other high performance materials which are available.

They have been developed as economic yet strong material alternatives for use in the demanding sealing environments within various industries for use in applications such as abrasive slurries, acids and alkalis and where high strength sealing materials are required.

K10 - PTFE Lubricated

Construction

Using the KLINGER®-Lock braiding system, K10 is manufactured from a combination of top quality synthetic yarns to provide an economical solution for general purpose rotary sealing applications. The PTFE lubricant provides a clean option where contamination of the product must be kept to a minimum.

Services

For uses in all centrifugal pump and valve applications, where mild alkalis and acids are pumped.

Typical Applications

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-10°C - 175°C
Pressure Range 0 - 15 Bar
Sliding Velocity 10 m/s
pH Range 4 - 10

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

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-10°C - 175°C
Pressure Range0 - 15 Bar
Sliding Velocity12 m/s
pH Range4 - 10

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

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-30°C - 260°C
Pressure Range0 - 100 Bar**
Sliding Velocity15 m/s
pH Range2 - 12

K7301C

Construction

Glass and ceramic yarn braided into square packing.

Services

High temperature valve packing for air, flue gas, and many other applications. 

Typical Applications

Static/door seals in steam boilers, reformers, furnaces, kilns, brick car damper seals, radiant tube packing for heat treat furnaces, thermocouple tubes in heat exchangers, insulation of pipelines, exhausts and pipeline expansion joints.

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range0°C - 700°C
Pressure Range 0 - 5 Bar
Sliding Velocity 0 m/s
pH Range 3 - 9

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

Reported Values of Performance*

Temperature Range-10°C - 260°C
Pressure Range0 - 30 Bar
Sliding Velocity16 m/s
pH Range 2 - 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.
