Graphite Gland Packing
We at PGE (Pilot Gaskets and Engineers) are pioneers for providing sealing solutions to our customers when it comes to AsbestosFree alternatives.
Asbestos is a mineral wool used for its insulation purposes. But, through time, we have known that this very material is extremely carcinogenic and had been responsible for deaths of numerous workers throughout history. The microscopic asbestos fibres tend to clog onto the bronchioles inside our lungs and cause cancer, also known as Asbestosis.
PGE India has successfully been able to offer 100% AsbestosFREE Solutions to its customers ensuring better working environment for the workers as well as nearby dwellers.
PGE® India presents our range of gland packing of different materials and applications:
Pilot Style 2140
PILOT STYLE 2140 is a diagonally braided from 100% pure gPTFE-yarn (PTFE with incorporated graphite). It has excellent heat dissipating properties and an extremely low coefficient of friction. This packing does not adhere to shafts or spindles. Chloride content < 20 ppm.
Properties: Temperature: -200 to 280°C, Pressure: 250 bar (static), pH: 0-14
PILOT STYLE 2140 is mainly a valve packing, it can also be used for slow moving rotary and reciprocating equipment like plunger pumps etc. It can be used in connection with most media including the most aggressive ones. Also suitable for oxygen, paints, lacquers, varnishes, etc. Not suitable for: Alkali metals, fluorine and fluorine compounds at high temperatures and pressures, fuming nitric acid, aqua regia.
Pilot Style 2210
PILOT Brand Style 2210 is diagonally braided from pure, expanded, flexible graphite yarn. Very flexible and supple packing, good alternative to preformed graphite-rings. PILOT Brand Style 2210 combines the advantages of pure graphite rings with the ease of installation of conventional packings; very
low coefficient of friction and excellent thermal conductivity; does not age or harden; chemically inert (pH 0-14) except with highly oxidizing media.
Properties: Temperature: 650°C (Steam), Pressure: 300 bar, pH: 0-14
Steam, water, fuel, gases, chemicals, mineral and synthetic oils, effluents. Suitable for all processes, except with highly oxidizing media.
- Pilot Style 2730I
PILOT STYLE 2730I is made up of highl purity expanded graphite material and knitted. It contains special high temperature impregnation and a corrosion inhibitor. These constituents results in high strength and stability especially in high temperature and pressure applications like in valves etc.
Properties: Temperature: -250 to 650°C, Pressure: 500 bar, pH: 0-14
Certifications: TA-LUFT, ISO 15848, API 622, API 589 (Fire Safe)
Useful in valve applications.
