Gland packing is commonly used on valves, pumps and other rotary and reciprocating equipment.
Our standard range of gland packings are constructed of either x or square braids. They are used across a broad spectrum of industries including petrochemical, food & beverage, pulp and paper, and power generation.
They are resistant to a wide range of media across a temperature range from -200° C – + 1050° C.
See the summary table below for an overview of our most common packings.
