Type VK1L/VK1D Aramid Gland Packing

Vulcan Type VK1L has been designed to replace and outlast traditional packing, particularly in abrasive media and high-pressure rotary applications.

VK1L is a square-braided packing made from KEVLAR® Aramid fibres thoroughly impregnated with pure Graphite powder and inert lubricant. The performance of the packing is further enhanced with corrosion inhibitors and Molybdenum Disulfide lubricant. Vulcan Style VK1D in inter-braided from KEVLAR® Aramid fibres further reinforced with Inconel wire and impregnated with pure graphite and a corrosion inhibitor.

Type VK1L/VK1D standard spool length is 8 metres. Custom lengths can be available - please contact us using the form.

Applications:  VK1L is a general purpose, wide-ranging, durable arduous duty packing. For use in rotary, reciprocating and static applications particularly against abrasive fluids, weak chemicals and water. Vulcan VK1D is a high strength valve packing also suitable for plunger pumps, turbines and static seals. Particularly for use in oils, air, water, hot steam and asphalt.
