Product DescriptionVM5.7/16 7/16inch Nomex Fibre, PTFE Lube Gland Packing x 8m
Vulcan VM1 is a universal Paper-Mill and Sugar-Mill packing, made of a unique Aramidic composite fibre. This special fibre combines an exceptionally high tensile strength 380,000 psi (27,000 kg/cm©÷), outstanding heat resistance, linked to low friction and excellent cool running properties. This is a strong Thermoset fibre packing but it is also extremely soft, assisted by our exclusive, three-stage, lubrication process. The low-friction factor reduces abrasion to up to 1/10 compared to Aramidic fibres, giving
high reliability and life, even in the most demanding of applications. VM1 is heat resistant and will not glaze, like usual Paper Mill & PTFE packing, even at high shaft speeds.
Type VM5 is a very similar product in more economical form. It will provide the same service but care must be taken not to over-tighten the gland nor starve the packing of product or flush lubrication. Type VM5 standard spool length is 8 metres.
Applications: Universal Paper-Mill, Sugar-Mill and demanding application packing, that is white non-staining, with excellent chemical resistance and is suitable for Kraft processes. Easy to cut and install, fast to break-in and with low susceptibility to adverse conditions, at installation or in-use.
