Valve Packing

S Glass" yarn was originally developed by NASA for high temperature space and aeronautical applications. When John Crane Inc. required material that would withstand temperatures higher than 1200 degrees Fahrenheit they contacted Owens-Corning which had developed a number of applications for the material. John Crane combines the yarn with other components to make Style 287-I packing. The product can be used in chemical processing operations nuclear power stations petroleum products etc. Advantages include increased service life and reduced maintenance costs."
