  Compression Packing
The cost-effective, high performance pump & valve packing. Offering excellent sealing and reliability for both Original Equipment Manufacturers and plant users alike.
K3222 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.
K3222 is manufactured using expanded graphite ribbons, to produce a compression packing of square cross-section that is fully flexible so that minimal gland pressure is required for an effective seal in pump applications.
K3222 has excellent thermal conductivity and resilience. Fitting is by traditional methods from the roll, since no special tools or forming dies are required. K3222 offers the user a very effective alternative to specialised die-formed graphite rings.
Graphite is very resistant to chemical attack and is an excellent steam grade. K3222 can be confidently used as a low emission packing. This is a self-lubricating packing with superior gliding properties. Its soft, conformable nature ensures that there is no abrasion of moving parts and that graphite pick-up on stems and shafts is minimised.
