Mechanical Packing

Mechanical Packing

Where: Used on rotating, reciprocating, and stationary equipment – pumps, and valve in a variety of industries – chemical, pulp & paper, mining, water & wastewater, food & beverage, oil & gas, and many others.

Why: This provides the lowest initial cost for sealing pumps, and reducing emissions, process leakage and thus process variability on valves. Versus other packing, we believe that Chesterton’s offerings can reduce power requirements for the pump and result in less leakage – lowering the total life cycle costs of the pumping system.

How: Wide range of packing offerings including the patented dual pack, allow proper packing selection for your application.

Considerations: For pumps – consider the water usage, maintenance schedules, pumping fluid, sealing water, temperature, pressures, and packing friction for packing selection. For valves – friction, leakage, process fluid or gas, temperatures, pressure, and valve type for packing selection.
