STYLE 2138

Ramie Yarn, Paraffin Impregnated

Description and Application

Style 2138 packing is braided with high quality ramie yarns in a square plait construction. The yarns are heavily impregnated throughout with paraffin and mineral oil.

Style 2138 is a well lubricated, medium-hard packing with extremely low frictional characteristics, which assures minimal shaft wear. The ramie yarn is rot and mildew resistant, making the packing ideal for marine use, handling cold water, salt water, and cold oils. In the marine industry, it is commonly used in stern tubes, rudder posts, and tail shaft liners. This style is also used in the pulp and paper, waste/wastewater, steel and mining industries.
