  Compression Packing
An excellent choice for plant wide use especially when a clean, non-contaminating packing is required with a high degree of chemical resistance.
K54F 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.
Ongoing Test & Development in line with the KLINGER service and quality philosophy will ensure improved performance in your pump and valve applications K54F is manufactured from only PTFE filaments. It is a clean noncontaminating compression packing. The special Klingerlock braiding process ensures a firm but flexible product of consistent density. The resulting packing is suitable for use in a wide range of industries and processes. PTFE is self-lubricating and this property coupled with the packing’s low coefficient of friction ensures easy operation and actuation of any valve, without stem wear.
PTFE is extremely resistant to a wide range of chemicals, therefore packing volume loss as a result of chemical attack does not readily occur.
Most glands that are packed with K54F need little adjustment after the initial installation.
Water Research Council potable water approval. BAM approval for oxygen service in valves up to 20 bar pressure, 600C for gaseous oxygen. For liquid oxygen there is no limitation other than the general limitations of the packing.
