The Chesterton SuperSet™ combines the superior sealing capabilities of Chesterton's compression packing products with the patented design of the EnviroSeal SpiralTrac™ Version P Environmental Controller for packed stuffing boxes. This total sealing solution set is specifically designed and proven to increase packing and equipment service life while dramatically reducing flush rates. The savings are significantly increased reliability with lower maintenance and operating costs.
The SpiralTrac Version P actually enhances the utilization of the flow and centrifugal effects around the shaft; it performs similarly to a centrifugal separator.
- The built-in tangential lantern ring and helical grooving system impart motion to the flush, and the resulting centrifugal force throws the particulates in the fluid to the outside of the bushing.
- The patented SpiralTrac grooving system then hydro-dynamically pumps the solids to the bottom of the stuffing box and back out into the pump casing.
- The ability to remove particulate from the stuffing box is what differentiates the SpiralTrac from plain restriction bushings on the market today.
Chesterton offers five high-performance compression packing options in the SuperSet that cover a complete range of applications while meeting the needs and requirements of various industries.
