Compression packing/s, or pump & gland seals are used under a range of conditions to seal a variety of fluids. They are used to contain water, acids, solvents, gases, oil, and other chemicals that are subjected to various temperatures and pressures.
Compression packings are commonly used on valves, pumps and other rotary and reciprocating equipment.
