  Compression Packing
Economical dense PTFE fibre grade for general plant use on pump and valve services to 2600C. Excellent resistance to chemical attack.
K54S 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 K54S is manufactured from PTFE filaments and lubricant.
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 K54S need little adjustment after the initial installation.
Water Research Council approval allows the packing to be used in potable water applications.
Due to its diverse capabilities K54S offers the engineer a packing that can cut maintenance requirements and also reduce stock holdings.
