The Vulcan VC5 is square-braided from high-quality Carbon yarns impregnated with pure Graphite, special high-temperature lubricants and Molybdenum Disulfide. The Carbon yarns are densely braided to provide a near frictionless, self-lubricating seal. Graphite powder provides non-migrating lubrication between the packing and the shaft. The non-glazing, high-temperature lubricant protects during the packing break-in period. The addition of Molybdenum Disulfide gives high temperature and high-pressure lubrication with shaft wear protection even when contact pressures between packing and shaft are excessive.
The VC5 Carbon fibre packing is swift to break-in because of its low friction lubricant intensive constituents and these characteristics allow for its extended life in arduous duties. Vulcan Type VC5 can be used in services where many other lubricated fibre packing types fail, due to migration or loss of lubrication and consequent fibre burning, hardening or glazing.
Applications: VC5 is ideal as a rotary duty, multi-service packing particularly for boiler feed applications.
