Material: Diagonally braided from Preox yarn, reinforced with fine metal wires, impregnated throughout with pure graphite powder and a corrosion inhibitor.
Properties: Style 2103/I is an economic solution for applications above the temperature limit of PTFE and gPTFE packings. It fills the gap between the "medium temperature" packings for up to 280°C and the more expensive "high temperature" packings made from pure carbon or graphite. The Preox yarn has excellent heat transmitting properties.
Application areas: For steam- and other valves in many different industries. Also for static applications.
Application media: Style 2103 is suitable for use with most chemicals, diluted acids and lyes, water, steam, oil, solvents, brine, sewage, etc.
Advantages: Economic all-round valve packing for elevated temperatures. The dense, yet flexible, packing assures excellent valve stem contact and good gland load transfer. Also available without wire reinforcement as style no. 2103.
Not suitable for: Concentrated acids and lyes, oleum, fuming nitric acid, aqua regia, fluorine.
