V packings or vee packing seals, also called chevron packings, are composed of male/female seals which form a set that is used for sealing usually in the presence of fluid in static, reciprocating and centrifugal applications.
While the design is generally quite standard, the selection of the right material and the number of rings to use depends on the operating pressure, temperature and media to be sealed.
V-Pack rings are mostly used as a mean of sealing in the stem of valves and pumps in a wide range of sectors such as Oil & Gas, Chemical and Food processing equipment.
Virgin PTFE, modified PTFE, glass or carbon fiber-filled PTFE, PEEK, a combination of materials is not only possible but recommended.
We can also offer NORSOK M710 approved materials.
