Palmetto style 1389, (100% GFO®) delivers the best all-around packing on the market.
Heavy graphite loading serves to both increase the heat transfer rate and decrease thermal expansion. This permits higher shaft speeds with less risk of glazing or burning. This reduces break-in time, lowers the chance of scoring, and promotes cooler long-term running.
Style 1389, (100% GFO) is highly recommended in wideranging service conditions, including highly reactive fluids, high shaft speeds and moderate to high pressures. Style 1389, (100% GFO) is proven in such diverse equipment as rotating pumps, valves, mixers, blenders, extruders, reciprocating pumps and agitators, among others.
