Sealing applications in practice

In a food processing plant, 4 rings of dry PTFE packing in 12.7 mm on a 30 mm shaft were installed in an Isegen rotary valve. The pressure was low and was only 1 bar. The food to be sealed was at room temperature. The service life of the packing was mostly only 2 weeks and ended with an uncontrollable leakage. The shaft sleeve used had to be replaced after 12 months. The TP619 was chosen as an improvement. It has lasted 6 months so far.
