Graphite Packing Style 3000G is a quality grade of gland packing used for sealing in pumps and valves. This dense yet flexible packing is manufactured in the USA using acrylic blended fibres that are impregnated with a high temperature lubricant and high purity graphite. This results in an economical grade of interlock braided packing that will create leak free seals with long performance lives.
Graphite Packing Style 3000G handles temperatures between -110°C and 260°C and is easy to work with and install. Sometimes known as graphite rope, this industrial grade packing is used in applications with a media pH between 4-10, a shaft speed rating up to 5.1MPS and pressures up to 20.7 BAR.
Applications for Graphite Packing.
- Gland and stuffing box sealing.
- Rotating, centrifugal and reciprocating pump sealing.
- Valve sealing.
- Marine packing applications.
- Static seal applications.
How do I cut it?
A box cutter (AKA Stanley knife) will get through our Graphite Packing, though you may need to make multiple slices (especially with the thicker sizes). If you’re looking to ensure you achieve an exact 45° cut (for making packing rings), our Packing Scissors may be of interest.
Do you have any tips on how to stop getting graphite all over my hands?
You’ve obviously done this before. We know the feeling all too well, you know you should wear gloves but they make working with it that little less natural. While gloves are the obvious option we have also had some success using our Weicon Hand Protective Foam before touching the packing. This seems to stop the graphite from sticking and washes off easily.
Do you make packing rings?
We can supply them, yes. We don’t make them ourselves but we do have some great partners who do here in Australia. If you’d like us to arrange some for you shoot us an email with the sizes and details of what you’re after and we can arrange a quote. We can usually turn these around fairly quickly (local stock and a local ring manufacturer helps a lot with this).
