  Compression Packing
A combination of high tech man made fibres and Klinger’s unique DOULON® lubricant, producing an economic yet versatile synthetic packing, well suited to general service in pumps and valves.
Ongoing Test& Development in line with the KLINGER service and quality philosophy has resulted in the development of this high performance, and improved packing for use on high speed pump and valve applications The base yarn of K20AF is spun from carefully selected acrylic and glass filaments.
To this we add our unique DOULON® lubricant.
The Klingerlock construction ensures a firm yet conformable packing that requires little adjustment after the initial installation.
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.
K20AF is ideally suited for use on Boiler Feed pumps, oil, hot or cold water, acids, alkalis and highly abrasive slurry applications in the mining industry.
The DOULON® lubricant improves the chemical resistance of acrylic and glass fibres allowing it to effectively seal the majority of chemical media commonly found within today’s industrial environments. K20AF is ideally suited for use in the Pulp& Paper, Sugar, Mining, Steam, Agriculture and Water industries.
K20AF 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.
