Pilotpack 3480

Description

A high performance packing manufactured from a multi filament graphited PTFE yarn impregnated with high temperature lubricant.

A combination of the Crossplait braid design with the lubricant impregnation ensures a long service life, even in arduous applications. The specially developed yarn has superior dimensional stability, pressure & extrusion resistance than homogeneous yarns often used in braided packing.

PILOTPACK 3480 is excellent general purpose packing for use in a wide rage of both dynamic and static applications. It is especially suitable for applications where extrusion can be a problem or there is low speed but large radial shaft movements such as in mixers or agitators.

Applications

  • Long sealing life for high speed pump applications but can also be used on valve, mixer and reciprocating applications, on almost all chemicals, solvents and oils.
  • Excellent performance at higher pressures due to superior anti- extrusion properties.
  • Capable of withstanding large radial shaft movements in mixers.
  • Suitable for many applications especially in refining, petro chemical, chemical, food and beverage and metal processing industries.

Chemical Compatibilities

  • For the pH range 1-14, the packing is chemically inert & suitable for steam but should not be used with fluorine, molten alkali metals, hot fuming nitric acid, ammonium nitrate, oxygen rich environments.

Sizes Available

  • All square sections are available from 3mm (1/8”) upwards, supplied in 8 m or 4 m lengths depending on the cross section. Rectangular sections can also be manufactured to order. PILOTPACK 3480 packing can also be supplied in preformed or die formed rings.
