Compression Packing

Garlock Compression Packing will contribute to maintain a safe process, meet stringent fugitive emission limits and save resources, with proven reliability.

Garlock packing products will generate the greatest return on initial investment in terms of leakage control, service life, dependability, and cost-effectiveness

Garlock compression packing is rigorously tested to ensure effective sealing in valves, pumps, agitators, and other rotary equipment. The development of the compression packing line reflects the evolution and innovation in the materials used in its production. Garlock develops and manufactures it\’s own technical yarn braided into packing, along with high performance proprietary coatings, that are essential in this age of sealing performance requirements.

Garlock’s product line includes industry recognized Low Emission valve stem packing, leading-edge and award winning pump packing sets like dry-running DSA, and water saving HYDRA-JUST®. Garlock pioneered the development of emission control valve stem packing in the early 1980s. Their innovation efforts have yielded a portfolio of low emission packing products to suit customer needs and meet EPA’s latest requirements.

Carbon Packing

Garlock Premium Carbon Packing offer field proven performance, versatility and longevity. The distinctive design using high purity staple carbon fiber results in carbon packing that can conform to shape better compared to continuous carbon filament packing. This better fit contributes to improved sealing, lower friction and greater longevity.

Premium Carbon Packing

Garlock Premium Carbon Packing offers field proven performance, versatility and longevity.

Carbon fiber packings are not all created equal. Higher carbon purity improves the temperature and chemical resistance of the braid. Lattice braid construction from staple fibers produces a carbon packing that conforms to the stuffing box better, requiring lower gland load to seal. That lower gland load translates into a packing that will last significantly longer than those made from continuous or stretch broken filaments. It also means that there will be less frictional drag on the shaft in rotating equipment and easier operation in valves. Garlock’s styles 98 and 5000 are designed to give the user the greatest return on initial investment in terms of leakage control, service life, and dependable, cost-effective product.
