PTFE Gland Packing
We at PGE 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 2120
PILOT STYLE 2120 is a diagonally braided from a newly developed ePTFE yarn, filled with highly refined mineral filler particles, and treated with FDA-conform mineral oil. STYLE 2120 is very malleable and supple packing with low coefficient of friction, hardly any shaft wear. The filler particles inside the yarn enhance the heat transfer properties as well as lubricant absorption and retention over a longer period. Excellent
chemical resistance. Easy to install, needs little gland adjustments.
Certification: FDA approved, ISO 15848.
Properties: Temperature: 280°C, Pressure: 30 bar, pH: 0-14
The chemical inertness of ePTFE makes this packing suitable for use with nearly all fluids, including the most corrosive acids and alkalis, while the FDA conformity allows for use with foodstuffs, pharmaceutical products and potable water.
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 2130
PILOT STYLE 2130 is PTFE gland packing with rubber core. The Rubber Core rubber core
gives the packing better memory, allowing it to withstand radial shaft motion and vibration while maintaining excellent leakage control with minimal gland adjustments.
Properties: Temperature: -50 to 230°C, Pressure: 200 bar, pH: 2-12
Food related equipment, agitators, blenders, mixers, washers, pulp or any other applications that undergo shaft deflection in normal operating conditions.
Pilot Style 2160 and 2180
These gland packings are diagonally braided from pure PTFE-yarn, reinforced throughout its body with durable aramid. It is also impregnated with PTFE-dispersion and silicone oil.
Properties: Temperature: 280°C, Pressure: 180 bar, pH: 2-12
Ideal for rotary and piston pumps, mixers, stirrers, digesters and valves in a wide variety of industries.
