Two high-performance, multiple service mechanical packings have been developed by A.W.

Chesterton Company, Stoneham, Mass., for pump and valve applications in media in pH range of 4 to 11, and in temperatures up to 400F(205C).

Greater yarn strength and the incorporation of PTFE and other lubricants enable both styles to be particularly effective. Each strand of the yarn has been individually coated to dissipate heat, and to allow proper frictional characteristics in centrifugal pump applications.

Du Pont's Kevlar aramid fibers are used in the yarn manufacture.

This permits the packing's use in higher pressures than are tolerated by other braided packings.

Chesterton Style 340 and 1740 can be used as backup rings in combination with other types of packing because of their g r e a t er strength.

Style 340 is s q u a r e - b r a i d e d.

Such construction generally allows greater flexibility and reduces shaft wear. Style 1740 is an interbraid construction, and is designed for applications in which pressures are high or/and shaft bearing support is weakened.
