GR8048

Composition

Flexible expanded graphite strands braided together the carbon yarns and impreganted with graphite powder and inhibitor of corrosion.

Characteristics

The graphite packing style GR8048, which combines carbon yarns and expanded mineral graphite is impregnated with a special solution based on pure graphite powder and corrosion inhibitor to improve the sealing performance while minimizing fugitive emissions. The packing style GR8048 shows great elasticity and reliability at high temperatures.

Applications

The graphite packing style GR8048 is extremely versatile thanks to the double yarns. It can be applied indifferently both in static services at high temperature and pressure and in dynamic services including that of soot blowers and those with diathermic oil. The graphite packing style GR8048 can be used with all non-oxidizing fluids and compatible with graphite.
