  Compression Packing
A combination of flax fibre and specialised DOULON® lubricant. Producing an economic packing well suited to pump slurries, slime and sand service and marine applications.
K13DL is constructed from a traditional Flax fibre uniquely impregnated during manufacture with our DOULON® and mineral lubricants.
As Flax fibres are particularly strong and have good resistance to water rot, especially salt water, this packing is suitable for centrifugal and reciprocating pumps handling slimes and slurries which are mildly corrosive.
K13DL will not harden or burn when used on high speed shafts due to the unique DOULON® compound lubricant.
K13DL is the preferred compression packing for Stern tube and marine application within the Klinger range.
The low coefficient of friction of the DOULON® lubricant ensures easy operation and actuation of any valve or pump, without detrimental stem or shaft wear.
Klingerlock construction ensures a firm yet conformable packing that requires little adjustment after the initial installation with long life. K13DL is suitable for use as a general, and in some cases specialist, valve and pump packing in the Pulp & Paper, Mining, Marine, Agriculture, Sugar and Water industries.
K13DL is only one of the extensive products in the KLINGER pump and valve sealing range. The range includes compression packings, moulded sets, low emission sets and specialised products.
This is an optimised range introduced to provide users with gland sealing products that meet today’s demanding services, offering effective and trouble-free sealing during application. To achieve this goal we have selected the best materials and the best production methods. The result is the KLINGER pump and valve sealing range.
