Gland Packing

Type VT9L

PTFE Packing

Vulcan Type VT9L is braided from pure PTFE fibres, in the form of multifilament yarns, vacuum impregnated with PTFE dispersion and saturated with chemically resistant lubricants. The PTFE fibres are pre-shrunk and square inter-braided to produce a dimensionally stable packing.

Type VT9L chemical pump packing exhibits high mechanical strength and high operational stability under demanding operation conditions, in addition to excellent non-friction characteristics. Shaft wear is virtually eliminated and Vulcan VT9L is capable of performing in service conditions far beyond conventional packing.

Type VT9L standard spool length is 8 metres. Custom lengths can be available - please contact us using the form.


Applications: The enhanced lubrication and multi-filament yarn treatment of Vulcan VT9L allow greatly extended service capability in pumps up to 12/m² surface shaft speed. For use in solvents and virtually all chemicals with the exceptions of molten and alkaline metals and fluorine. Specify VT9L to replace VT9D in higher speed, or in the most corrosive duties.
