Chesterton DualPac® 2212 Packing Technology the Versatile Option for Paper Mill
Chesterton products – Chesterton DualPac® Packing Technology
A specialist customer needed a strong and versatile packing option to manage a large shutdown at a paper mill. With various applications needing assistance (centrifugal pumps, fan pumps, etc.), they needed an option that could operate under multiple conditions. DualPac® 2212 Packing Technology was installed and has been operating without issues since!
Products featured in this case study:
A specialist in Europe needed to supply packing for a large shutdown at a paper mill. There were various applications to seal including centrifugal pumps, fan pumps, and agitators. The fluid being sealed is raw water with a high percentage (1.5%) of paper stock solids. The challenges with sealing abrasive media are the short life of packing and fast sleeve wear.
The specialist installed DualPac® 2212 Packing Technology on most applications and some combinations of the 2212 and SpiralTrac™ environmental controller on other applications.
Applications with DualPac® 2212 Packing Technology were installed during the shutdown and have been running without issues for six months. Installations were all positive with easy start-up and smooth break-in of packing.
