Packing is used to repack glands for both valves and pumps, or any application that uses a gland seal. We have both PTFE and graphite available which will cover most media and temperature applications. These range in thicknesses from 4mm to 22mm and in either 1m or 8m lengths. These are quite often needed in a hurry during breakdown situations so we can express ship them to you or you can collect from our Geelong warehouse.
