General Purpose Compression Packing

FTL Technology has provided compression packing solutions for all kinds of industries and applications, with the expertise and experience to recommend the most suitable pump and valve packing for any given application. Wherever your operational challenges lie, from wear resistance and flexibility through to high performance under temperature and pressure extremes, there is a packing material with the adaptations you need.

Many specialist braids are ideally suited to the HTHP demands of oil and gas applications. Some have the necessary certifications to be employed in food and pharmaceutical processing. If you are looking for a general application compression packing for your valves and pumps, our engineers can customise an optimal sealing solution which reduces your downtime and costs along with your leakage.

Considerations for general compression packing

The main factors to be determined when selecting the right braid combination are:

  • Temperature
  • Pressure
  • Operating speed
  • Media type

Once these have been identified, we can establish the packing material and arrangement which would deliver the best results. Take a look at some of our most popular general purpose packings - and their operational limits.
