Palmyra, New York (PRWEB) June 2, 2006 –-
Garlock Sealing Technologies, a leader in fluid sealing technology for more than 100 years, has launched Garlock Style 1965 Compression Packing, which combines excellent abrasion resistance with a high degree of flexibility and easy handling. Style 1965 is designed to be easy to cut, easy to form into rings, and easy to install.
Customers can reduce storeroom inventory and enjoy better cash flow management because the packing can be used in a wide variety of environments, including general service, mining, pulp and paper, and water and waste water applications. Style 1965 lasts longer than traditional packing, so customers will save money and improve production efficiency by reducing downtime. Because of its high degree of thermal stability, Style 1965 requires less flush water, conserving a valuable natural resource and reducing customers’ energy expenses.
Additional advantages of this new packing include protecting rotating equipment’s critical components from abrasive media, which reduces maintenance expenditures; it’s also shock-resistant – withstanding cavitations, pressure surges, and other system disruptions. There’s also no contamination, keeping customers’ end products and pump areas clean.
Customers can purchase the new Style 1965 Compression Packing through Garlock’s normal channels – including distributors and its new iStore on http://www.garlock.com.
