Sealing applications in practice

In an oil refinery, an asphalt/heavy-oil loading pump with a 50mm shaft was sealed by 7 rings of 14mm packing. The product temperature was 135 °C and the pressure was 12bar. The speed of the shaft was 720 rpm-1. So far, a PTFE/graphite packing was used. It had to be retightened weekly and the maximum service life achieved was 3 months. A TP30 packing supplied in pre-compressed rings was used as an improvement. It lasted 12 months and had to be retightened only 1 time per month.
