Gore® Valve Stem Packing DP
Continuous length valve packing
GORE® Valve Stem Packing DP is a pliable, self-lubricating packing that eliminates stem wear and lasts indefinitely.
This continuous length packing installs easily and forms a cohesive cylinder when compressed, eliminating the need to cut and form rings.
In most cases, it is not necessary to remove the valve from service, and no disassembly is required. When GORE® Valve Stem Packing DP is wound around a valve stem, pushed into the stuffing box and compressed by tightening the gland nut, it is compacted into a high density packing. The result is a perfect, high-precision fit and a packing that fills flaws and irregularities — including those caused by wear. Once installed, a slight turn on the gland nut is all the maintenance that is usually required. GORE® Valve Stem Packing DP is unaffected by all common chemicals and will not contaminate product flow. It is ideal for use in chemical processing plants, natural gas supply systems and petroleum refineries.
