Phelps range of pure graphite compression packing styles are self-lubricating, dimensionally stable, impervious to gases and fluids, and corrosion resistant. In general, pure graphite is highly recommended when temperature exceeds 250°C / 482°F, and for application requiring self-lubrication.
Graphite packing is widely used in high temperature & pressure environments such as: refineries, paper and pulp mills, petrochemical plants, power plants, and wastewater treatment facilities.
Graphite packing is ideal for the following equipments: control and block valves, LP steam turbine valves, condensate line valves, manually valves, power recovery valves. Soot blowers, agitators and mixers, boiler feed pumps, condensate pumps, hot water circulation pumps, heater drain pumps.
