Pump & Valve Packing for High Abrasives
All of the compression packing we offer is highly durable. It has to be to stand up to the high speeds, pressures, and temperatures it encounters during everyday use; many applications also bring harsh chemicals and other extreme conditions. But for pumps and valves that handle highly abrasive substances, an even higher level of durability is required.
Delmar Company supplies specialized pump and valve packing for high abrasive applications, from pumping slurries to handling mining debris. We offer high abrasive compression packing from some of the industry’s top manufacturers, and will work with you to find the best and most effective option for your specific needs.
The Right High Abrasive Packing for Your Application
Abrasive-resistant compression packing is made with a combination of specialized coatings and fiber materials that enable it to withstand continuous contact with highly abrasive materials without sacrificing flexibility or sealing performance. We offer a variety of high abrasive pump and valve packing products—the best option for your needs will depend on a number of factors, including the media you’re working with, temperature and pressure requirements, and more.
We use a series of questions, which we call STAMPS, to ensure that you get the best and most effective abrasive-resistant compression packing for your application. Please keep the following questions in mind when specifying packing for your pumps and valves:
- S: Size of the pump or valve opening to be sealed
- T: Temperature range in which the compression packing will be used
- A: Application—is it a rotary pump? a centrifugal pump? a valve? etc.
- M: Media—what must the packing prevent from leaking?
- P: Pressure range in which the compression packing will be used
- S: Speed the compression packing must withstand—high RPMs, centrifugal motion, etc.
If you need or want high abrasive packing from a specific manufacturer for your application, please let us know and we will do our best to find the right product for your needs from your preferred manufacturer.
We offer abrasive-resistant compression packing in a range of standard sizes to fit most any application. However, if our standard high abrasive packing doesn’t meet your requirements, we can, in many cases, work with manufacturers to produce custom packing to match your specifications.
