Vulcan type VF225 is square-braided from long, heavy duty natural fibre yarns. These high-strength yarns are thoroughly impregnated, before and after braiding, with a specially blended lubricant. The packing is designed to give a very low resistance of friction, wear, rotting, good compressibility, high flexibility, high tensile strength and ease of installation.
VF225 is an excellent, general purpose packing, especially for water duties. Its resilience, low shaft wear, ease of fitting and economic cost makes Vulcan VF225 an effective choice for many standard applications.
