  • Especially effective when attempting to run at low to zero leakoff
  • Effective as a pump/valve standard packing for all areas except where a noncontaminating packing is required
  • Best choice for boiler feed and condensate pumps
  • Excellent steam valve packing

Style 5080 was created to handle high shaft speeds and hot water/steam service in static and dynamic applications. The flexible graphite portion has excellent high-temperature sealability and the 95% assay carbon yarn corners prevent extrusion of the flexible graphite. The marriage of these materials produces a packing that can standardize an entire plant and reduce leakage to virtually zero for significant maintenance and operational savings.
