Garlock Pitch Based Carbon Packings

garlock1Gallagher Fluid Seals is a Garlock master distributor. At our facility in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, we stock a variety of Garlock packing materials in a number of sizes.

We can provide our customers full spools of packing material, or customized packing sets cut to size and engineered specifically for their application.

The Garlock compression packing facility is committed to supplying the highest quality engineered products to industries throughout the world. It is designed to give the user the greatest return on initial investment in terms of leakage control, service life, and dependable, cost-effective product.

The facility also houses the Garlock textile division, where they continue to research and develop new fiber blends to bring customers a wide array of packings with optimum performance characteristics.

Long-Life Pitch Based Carbon Packings

Not all carbon fiber packings are created equal. The two attributes that differentiate carbon fiber are purity levels and whether the yarn is made from a continuous filament or from staple fibers. Higher carbon purity improves the temperature and chemical resistance of the braid while the fiber type affects sealing. Simply put, braid constructed from staple fibers conforms to the stuffing box better, requiring lower gland load to make a seal. That lower gland load translates into a packing that will last up to 3 times longer than those made from continuous filaments. It also means that there will be

Simply put, braid constructed from staple fibers conforms to the stuffing box better, requiring lower gland load to make a seal. That lower gland load translates into a packing that will last up to 3 times longer than those made from continuous filaments. It also means that there will be less frictional drag on the shaft which translates to energy savings in rotating equipment and easier operation in valves.

Garlock’s styles 98 and 5000 offer energy savings and the benefits of unrivaled service life as compared to other carbon yarns due to their high purity, staple carbon fiber construction.
