Compression packing, also known as braided packing, varies by both braid materials and braiding methods. Both gland packing and shaft packing for pumps and valves can be optimised with the correct material choice for the pressures, temperatures and media encountered. Ranging from cotton to graphite packing braid choices, our engineers can design a combination to perform best in your application.
FTL Technology can identify the correct packing material for your requirements, with considerations ranging from pressure and temperature extremes through to material compatibility. By advising on the right choice of material, our engineers can help your pump or valve require less frequent maintenance and a longer lifespan.

Across oil and gas, power generation, food, pharmaceutical and chemical processing applications, our experienced team of sealing engineers can advise you on the optimal packing material for your exact specifications. With FTL Technology, your equipment will perform to a higher standard with greater reliability and lower operating costs.
Fugitive Emission Control (FEC)
Reduction of fugitive emissions is a critical concern for chemical plant and refinery operators to comply with environmental regulations. Coupled with the potential for significant cost-savings, finding the right sealing solution for industrial valves is crucial to safe and reliable operation.
Combining the extrusion resistance of a specially-selected packing material with the resilience of a high performance elastomer seal, a customised FEC sealing set from FTL Technology can ensure full compliance with fugitive emission control and keep any critical valve application running smoothly and cost-effectively.
FEC Sealing Sets: The Benefits
- Meet safety obligations and regulations more efficiently
- Minimise economic losses due to gas or other product leaks
- Increased environmental responsibility
All FTL Technology fugitive emission control products conform to TA Luft legislature, and are compliant with ISO 15848, API 589 and API 622.
