NATURAL FLAX SHAFT PACKING IMPREGNATED WITH TEFLON-PTFE FLAX
Flax PTFE packing is braided from flax rovings and is then impregnated with PTFE lubricant. The combination of the quality flax and the PTFE lubricant provides a packing that has a higher performance level than conventional packings.
TEFPACK SHAFT PACKING WITH SYNTHETIC YARN
Tefpack shaft packing is a combination of synthetic fibers blended with PTFE. This blending of synthetic fibers and PTFE delivers a shaft packing that is very strong and very durable. Unlike natural fibers, Tefpack is not susceptible to the "rot/mildew" cycle that occurs with organic fibers. Natural fibers such as flax, which maintain moisture while the stuffing box is idle, can set up the conditions for mildew that may turn into rot. The rot weakens the fibers in the packing braid which leads to the breakdown of the packing. This cycle can be avoided by using a shaft packing that incorporates a synthetic yarn as its basic foundation. Tefpack shaft packing uses a very strong synthetic yarn that delivers ongoing service, season after season.
GTU SHAFT PACKING WITH W.L. GORE FIBERS
GTU shaft packing is the ultimate performance shaft packing. This product is braided with W.L. Gore fibers, which renders it thermally conductive, allowing your stuffing box to run cooler. The low surface friction of GTU contributes to less drag on the shaft, which results in better fuel economy. The combination of W.L. Gore fibers, PTFE and graphite produce a packing that is very strong and durable, eliminating the annual shaft packing replacement cycle. This product has proven itself in the commercial marine market for a number of years and is the number one choice of work boat owners around the world. GTU provides performance, strength and savings.
