Palmetto Style 1387 is premium PTFE Graphite packing with no added lubrication, which generally results in less tightening required. We consider 1387 the “dry" PTFE/Graphite packing, which can help prevent extrusion from pressure.
1387 recommended for static, reciprocating or hydraulic type applications. Ideal for large turbines since requires fewer adjustments to seal. Okay for use in rotating pumps, but not recommended for fast shaft speeds.
