  Compression Packing
A high purity, high performance, graphite fibre packing for both valve and pump applications.
K44 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 sealing range.
Ongoing Test& Development in line with KLINGER’s service and quality philosophy will ensure improved performance in your pump and valve applications.
K44 is produced from a high purity graphite yarn that KLINGER then lubricate with a special dispersion.
Klingerlock braiding produces a packing that is consistently dense with excellent volumetric stability.
The result is an excellent graphite packing offering reliable sealing performance in both valve and pump applications.
The additional lubricant improves the packing’s overall capability in dynamic applications and also acts as a blocking agent to improve sealing.
K44 will resist virtually all media over an extensive range of pressures and temperatures and is only affected by the presence of
powerful oxidisers. Although frequently employed on its own, the packing can be used as part of a specialised composite set in conjunction with either K3222 packing or K35 dieformed rings. Within these sets K44 acts as both supporting anti-extrusion rings and wiper rings.
