Slade Packing Installation and Extraction

Packing Compressor Kit

Combinations of different width compressors can be used, determined by depth of stuffing box. For larger diameters, you may bend the strips toward the slotted side, and for smaller diameters you will need to bend the strips away from the slotted side.

  1. Cut the appropriate compressor (determined by packing cross-section) to the correct length for the circumference of the shaft/stem.
    • Coil or flatten for ease of storage
    • Cut to length on site
    • Choose from many cross sections
  2. Install one ring of packing and use the compressor(s), in conjunction with the packing gland, to compress the packing to the proper compression ratio (also can be determined by torque factors).
  3. REMOVE Compressor(s) (Compressors are easily removed with the assistance of two packing hooks).
  4. Repeat process until stuffing box is filled.

To achieve PEAK PERFORMANCE, properly compress packing during installation. To achieve PROPER COMPRESSION, use the SLADE Packing COMPRESSOR KIT!

Place PCK as shown to compress each ring into the stuffing box.
