Features

Thermoflon SL 6230/SL is a diagonally braided packing made from graphite-incorporated PTFE yarn with additional lubricant. With its universal structure, the packing is used in almost every branch of industry.

Advantages

  • Treats shafts gently
  • Extremely low friction coefficients
  • No stick-slip effect
  • Highly flexible
  • High volumetric stability
  • Outstanding functional efficiency
  • Very high thermal conductivity
  • No embrittlement
  • Does not age

Operating range

Pumps
Pressure: p = 25 bar
Sliding velocity: vg = 20 m/s
Valves Pressure: p = 100 bar
Sliding velocity: vg = 2 m/s
Plunger Pumps
Pressure: p = 250 bar
Sliding velocity: vg = 2 m/s
Mixers, agitators, kneaders, filters
Pressure: p = 25 bar
Sliding velocity: vg = 2 m/s

Temperature
  • Continuous operation:
    t = -200 °C ... +280 °C (-328 °F ... +536 °F)
  • Hot water:
    without cooling ...+140 °C

Chemical resistance:
pH = 0 ... 14
Not suitable for use in hot steam or abrasive media.

Variants

6230/SLAK (braided in AK-profile)

Notes

For sealing hot water pumps, the required leakage must always emerge in liquid form in order to lubricate the packing. The compression packing will have to be cooled via a lantern ring or a jacket, gland or shaft cooling system if the heat radiation via the stuffing box housing is not sufficient.
