Vulcan VG1L is an alternative packing for light duties. VG1L is interbraided from continuous filament, textured air-blown glass fibres thoroughly impregnated with mineral oil lubricants and graphite. A dressing and corrosion inhibitor is further applied to the yarn to improve wear resistance.
Type VG1L will handle non-mechanically demanding Plant Applications whilst requiring low gland pressure to seal thus reducing shaft wear and gland maintenance. Specify Type VG1L for general plant service, at elevated temperatures, only if Carbon or Graphite fibres are not required. Glass fibres offer exceptional temperature resistance but are relatively low strength.
- Thoroughly impregnated with Mineral Oil lubricants and Graphite
- Suited to general purpose packing for rotary and reciprocating pumps, mixers and valves.
- Reduces Shaft wear and gland maintenance
