Metric Industrial offers a wide variety of seals used in devices and valves such as rotary and piston pumps in accordance with the sealing materials program.
For this range of applications, our products are of high quality and are produced in many combinations of materials and impregnations.
We use natural materials (cotton, ramie) and synthetic materials (Glass, Aramid, Acrylic, PTFE, PTFE / Graphite, expanded graphite etc.) for knitted seals.
Please check the soft seal selection table for product selection suitable for your area of use.
Use these graphite-impregnated graphite seals for steam applications in pumps and valves.
Offering excellent flexibility for steam applications in pumps and valves, these seals are made of expanded graphite yarn.
Made of graphite-impregnated carbon, these steam-resistant seals dissipate heat from the shaft to protect pumps and valves when operating at high speeds.
The Inconel-wire reinforcement in these expanded-graphite yarn seals ensures they keep their shape longer than the High-Flexibility Steam-Resistant Packing Seals. Use them for steam applications in valves.
Made of PTFE-impregnated synthetic fiber, these seals are for use in pumps. They're lubricated to prevent overheating.
The most abrasion resistant of all our packing seals, these are made of PTFE-impregnated aramid fiber that has been saturated in a lubricant. They are for use in pumps.
Synthetic yarn that’s comparable in strength to aramid is combined with graphite for soft seals that dissipate heat away from the shaft to extend the life of pumps.
Our most compressible packing seals, these require less pressure than any other to make an effective seal. They’re made of lubricated PTFE-impregnated aramid fiber and are for use in pumps.
These seals require lighter packing pressure than standard oil- and water-resistant packing seals, so they cause less friction and reduce shaft wear. They’re made of graphite-impregnated aramid fiber and are for use in pumps and valves.
These lubricated PTFE fiber seals stand up to acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents. Use them in pumps and valves.
Aramid and PTFE fibers are blended for seals that resist chemicals and abrasion. Use these seals in pumps for applications involving acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents.
Made of FDA-listed material for use with food and beverage, these PTFE seals are lubricated with mineral oil. Use them in pumps for applications involving acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents.
Fill irregularities in valve stem with these soft PTFE seals. They are self-lubricating. Use them in applications involving acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents.
Built for high-speed pump and valve applications, these super-tough seals are made of expanded-graphite yarn with carbon-yarn corners. Use them with acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents.
Also known as 100% GFO, these expanded PTFE seals contain graphite powder, which dissipates heat away from the shaft and allows pumps to run cool at high speeds. Use them in applications involving acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents.
These seals are made of PTFE fiber without a lubricant, so they’re harder than other chemical-resistant packing seals to handle high-pressure valve applications. Use them with acids, alkalies, brines, and solvents.
