Minimizes or Virtually Eliminates Leakage!
No flush-water translates into:
Reduces Inventory and Cost
Worn Shafts and Sleeves Easily Sealed
Why Traditional Packings Fail
Slade Packed Centrifugal Pumps: Typical Stuffing Box VERSES Slade Packed Stuffing Box
Flush-Free & Virtual Leak-Free Service
Depending on design of equipment and speed of shaft, a permanent split bushing may be installed last (after 3300G Rings). Please contact us for a recommendation.
Seals Rotating Equipment
Whereas most pump packings are largely abrasive fibers with added lubricants that can be squeezed, washed or cooked out, Slade 3300G utilizes the self-lubricating qualities of the very best natural, exfoliated graphite.
Incorporating just enough temperature and chemical resistant ‘carbon fiber’ to make very high tensile strength yarns, Slade’s patented technology allows the braided packing rings to transfer frictional heat away from high speed shaft sleeves, eliminating the need, in most cases, for cooling water.
Since cooling or flushing is not typically required, there is no need for lantern rings. This eliminates the concern of the lantern rings being adjusted out of position, flush water ports becoming plugged, or sleeve wear caused by the corrosive nature of highly oxygenated water on hardened sleeves.
Replaces expensive Mechanical Seals at 25% of the cost. Split to install without dismantling the pump
An alternative to machining costly bushings is to utilize Slade’s DSS Sealing System. No machining, no dismantling of the pump. Achieve leak-free, flush-free service. It comes fully unitized, ready to install, and we'll inform you of the gland compression required. If you follow Slade’s installation instructions, you eliminate fear of over-tightening.
The SLADE DSS sealing system can achieve Mechanical Seal performance at packing costs. Contact Slade for information on the DSS bushings.
