  • Chesterton 1400R Carbon-Reinforced Graphite Packing

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Chesterton 1400R Carbon-Reinforced Graphite Packing:Reinforced, braided, graphite packing with a corrosion inhibitor. The carbon yarn reinforcement is provided within the graphite tape yarn as well as the braided construction.

    • 1400R forms a homogeneous mass under gland pressure, so that leakage cannot penetrate the packing set.
    • The all-carbon/graphite set withstands higher shaft speeds while limiting shaft friction.
    • The structural carbon fiber reinforcement prevents extrusion when 1400R sets are installed in valves at higher pressures.

    In addition to its excellent sealing capabilities in rotating equipment, 1400R is a superior valve sealing material. This dual purpose design makes it a truly universal mechanical packing.​

  • Chesterton 329 Stern-Lon Marine Flax Shaft Packing

    Chesterton 329 Stern-Lon®​ is square-plait-braided to provide an unusually flexible, formable sha​ft packing. The base fiber is a long-fibered, roved flax of the highest quality. 329 is graphite-free to avoid galvanic corrosion on shafts. ​

    During production, 329 is first impregnated with concentrated PTFE dispersion to promote non-flowing lubricity and to retard degradation. This is followed with a plasticizing “break-in” lubricant which assures compressibility, flexibility, and good packing-to-shaft contact. Large sizes need not be hammered into place. Finally, to minimize frictional attrition, a finely divided fluorocarbon powder is embedded into the surface of the packing.  Chesterton 329 produces little or no shaft or sleeve wear.​​
