  • Garlock Mechanical Packing Division, Colt Industries, is offering a free 44-page full-color catalog on their line of sealing devices for the marine industry.

    Garlock, a worldwide supplier of sealing devices, has been developing effective sealing methods and products since 1887. The company has manufacturing and distribution centers around the globe including such locations as: Palmyra, N.Y.; Dusseldorf, West Germany; Brisbane, Australia; Montreal, Canada; London, England; Barcelona, Spain; and many others.

    The 44-page publication uses color photographs, specification, reference and data charts to describe and explain the applications of Garlock sealing devices. The catalog covers such devices as: high-temperature valve stem packing; stern tube packings; soft packings for pumps and valve service; versatile VFE packings; tough metallic and highly lubricated packing; abrasive service packing; and several more.

    A special feature of the Garlock catalog is a handy "Garlock Quick Reference Marine Sealing Devices" chart. The chart, which is broken into two sealing device categories— compression packings and jointing material—gives the style, material, application and service of each product found in the catalog.
