Garlock Introduces Asbestos-Free Packing —Literature Available

A new illustrated Bulletin CMP- 134, just published by Garlock Inc. introduces Style #5050 pump packing as an economical, dustfree alternative to asbestos for industries pumping slurries and other abrasive media and for applications where recovery from shaft deflection is important.

Said to be ideal for reciprocating and slow rotary motion as well as for use as a groove packing, the Style #5050 features a resilient EPDM core with an outer jacket of high-tensile, abrasionresistant, yellow KEVLAR IT® aramid fibers. It operates in a pH range of 3-11, functions at speeds to 1,000 fpm, and handles line temperatures from — 251 C (— 420 F) to +260 C ( + 500 F).
