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 proven to increase packing and equipment service life while dramatically reducing flush rates.
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 six high-performance compression packing options in the SuperSet that cover a complete range of applications while meeting the needs and requirements of various industries (see Technical Data below).
