American Seal & Packing
Division of Steadman & Associates, Inc.
The best thing to happen to the sealing and gasket industry over the last 10 years has got to be Flexible Graphite or Grafoil ® and we handle all types. Including: Sheet, Ribbon, Braided and Ribbon Pack. At one time it was only used in high temp applications, but like the computer your on ....the prices have come down.
|Ribbon Pack used for Valves in the field, or to make die formed packing sets is one of Grafoils ® most common uses. Used in Refineries, Power Plants, Co-Generation Facilities or anyone dealing with high temp applications. We can deliver it to you in any dimension you choose.|
| Flexible graphite, due to
it's softness seals great but can also break if bent too far. To make it
easier to handle we offer it with a 316 S.S. foil insert, tanged insert,
or for easier cutting - no insert at all. Available in a range of grades
from automotive & Industrial to Nuclear.
|Die formed sets for valves in applications that require the lowest of leak rates. Now a standard in the valve industry because of it's effectiveness, Carbon yarn end rings with die formed flexible graphite center rings.|
Thermabriad Temp: 1200 F Steam, 0-14 pH
A high temperature packing good for most applications. Now available in this braided version that eliminates the need for dies. Great for high temp or chemical applications (non-oxidizing) that can not leak. When you have to have the leak rate near that of a Mechanical Seal in a pump this is the packing to use.
