Graphite braided packing

General Features

A braided graphite fiber is filled in the sealed cavity to block the leakage path and seal. Often used with graphite rings. Good self-lubricating and thermal conductivity, low friction coefficient, good flexibility, good strength, good resistance to media erosion.

Can be used for boiling water, high temperature, high pressure steam, heat exchange liquid, oil, acid and alkali, hydrogen, ammonia, organic solvents, hydrocarbons, cryogenic liquids and other media. Widely used in petroleum, chemical, electric power, metallurgy, machinery, paper and other industries of centrifugal and reciprocating pumps, valves, pipes and other seals.

Transportation and Storage

Prevent rain and moisture during transportation.
Should be stored in a clean, dry warehouse.

The sealing principle

The reason why woven packing can play a role in sealing is mainly the bearing effect and the labyrinth effect.
The bearing effect of braided packing means that a layer of liquid film is formed between the braided packing and the shaft due to the tension, so that the braided packing and the shaft form a similar relationship to the sliding bearing so that the braided packing and the shaft are not excessively rubbed. And wear occurs.
The labyrinth effect of braided packing means that the surface of the shaft is virtually always uneven, and the packing and the shaft can only partially fit and do not completely fit together. There is always an extreme between the braided packing and the shaft. With tiny gaps, these gaps form labyrinth belts in which the medium is throttled several times to achieve sealing.

Flexible graphite braided packing should have a well-proportioned pattern, a smooth surface, no exposed threads, no particulate matter or foreign matter, and flexible graphite braided fillers
Molded press rings should have no delamination, flat interfaces, no looseness, and clean surfaces with no impurities.
