Greater Flexibility... less leakage :
Multi-Lon is flexible and moldable, conforms to stuffing box configurations because it lacks stiffness — eliminates the leak paths of stiffer packings — reduces the need for frequent adjustments — requires only minimal gland torque — finger tight leakage control reduces power consumption and sleeve wear ...a breakthrough in packing fiber.
Long Wearing... fewer repackings :
Exclusive Chesterton PTFE pre-treatment of separate fibers followed by a sacrificial lubricant after inter braiding, protects packing and sleeve at break-in, prolongs service life.
Non-Staining... protects product quality :
Graphite-free Multi-Lon will withstand liquors, hypochlorites and other process chemicals — no silicone to stain paper products Multi-Lon is non-contaminating, non-hazardous under normal conditions of use.
Non-Hardening... fewer adjustments :
In abrasive and corrosive services, Multi-Lon remains pliable without the hardening to which asbestos/PTFE types are subject.
Non-Abrasive... less sleeve wear :
Multi-Lon has the tensile strength of aramid types to resist extrusion but has a lower coefficient of friction with less heat generated, less wear on shaft sleeves. It also retains a greater percent of its tensile strength at running temperatures.
Non-Pitting... saves shafts :
Multi-Lon has the chemical resistance of carbon or graphite Fiber types, but does not have its electrolytic pitting problem.
