DualPac® 2211 and 2212 Packing Reduces Cost and Time at Salt Plant
Chesterton products – Chesterton DualPac® Packing Technology
A customer working in a salt processing plant was under pressure to reduce costs and adjustments to their original packing in order to keep up with competitors. Chesterton supplied them with Dualpac® 2211 and DualPac® 2212 to apply to multiple pumps, and the results spoke for themselves, the Chesterton packing needing only half the adjustments compared to the original
Products featured in this case study:
A salt processing plant in Germany is already using a para-aramid packing as the solution on their very abrasive pumping applications. However, the customer is under pressure to reduce costs and is trying lower expensive competitor products. In addition, the existing packing needed to be adjusted frequently.
The customer tried DualPac® 2211 packing and DualPac® 2212 packing on multiple pumps.
DualPac® packing has proven to require only half the adjustments compared with the previous packing. The internal live loading technology that is incorporated in the DualPac® packing gives the packing additional elasticity while not severely wearing the shaft.
