Gland Packing

Gland Packing acts as a protective sleeve over a cable or for piping in applications where pressure or other factors pose as a threat.

Gland packing is often used instead of a mechanical seal as packing is cost effective, easy to install and can be used in various types of products.

Examples where packing is used:

  • Valves
  • Pumps
  • Boilers

Industries where packing is used:

  • Food
  • Mining
  • Construction
  • Industry
  • Farming
  • Government
