Natural Fibre Gland Packing

Type VF225 Natural Fibre Gland Packing

Vulcan type VF225 is square-braided from long, heavy-duty natural fibre yarns. These high-strength yarns are thoroughly impregnated, before and after braiding, with a specially blended lubricant. The packing is designed to give a very low coefficient of friction, resistance to wear and rotting, good compressibility, high flexibility, high tensile strength and ease of installation.

VF225 is an excellent, general purpose packing, especially for water duties. Its resilience, low shaft wear, ease of fitting and economic cost makes Vulcan VF225 an effective choice for many standard applications.

Type VF225 standard spool length is 8 metres. Custom lengths can be available - please contact us using the form.

Applications: Type VF225 is suitable for all general water-based applications in pumps and valves, up to 248°F (120°C).
