Kenworks Ventures Company Limited is the leading supplier of Gland Packing in Kenya for your pumps, boilers or related applications. We have all sizes of gland packing at affordable prices. Our gland packing is made from carbon fibers and graphited for superior performance.
The gland packing is a contact-type sealing element. Compared with other types of shaft seals, they are adjustable and suitable for use with pressures and circumferential speeds higher than those radial shaft seal rings are used for. Gland Packing Seal is Braided from 100 % Virgin PTFE Yarns which are then pre-treated with continuous graphite impregnation, it has self lubricating property which assists dissipation of heat, which ensures negligible hardness, no friction and hence results in minimal shaft wear.
Carbon Fiber Gland Packing
Carbon fiber packing is Braided from strong carbon continuous yarns after softening, impregnated with proprietary lubricants and graphite particles, which fill voids, act as a break-in lubricant, and block leakage. The Inconel wire reinforcement provides increased mechanical strength, usually for static.
Temperature range is 200°C to 500°C.

Types of Gland Packing:
For many water pumps gland packing is used to prevent any leakage from the shaft of the pump.
However, the question becomes: “Which type of gland packing should you use for any given type of pump?” Well, there are eight main types of gland packing that we carry and each should be used in different situations.
The first kind is the Style 99 and is a good multi-purpose packer. It can be used with almost any type of quality pump and has a relatively wide pH range to suit a variety of conditions.
The Style 99H hollow core is similar in design, however, it has the ability to flex more. When compressed, it can return mostly to its original shape and it can withstand more movement and vibrations.
For pumps that run with high speed or under high pressure, the Style 9001B packing is the kind to choose. It is specifically designed to withstand extreme conditions and is best suited for pumps that do the same.
When it comes to chemical applications, few get the job done like the Style 33 packing. This kind has high pH resistance, meaning that normally corrosive chemicals will have little effect on it.
The Style 9001C is designed for valve packing and with equipment that normally operate under high temperatures and pressure, such as steam valves. It is more resilient than some of the other kinds.
The next type of packing materials are moulds that work in conjunction with gland packing. It enhances the qualities of the packing to ensure fully that no leaks occur. While not essential, they are still extremely effective.
The Style 77HS mould works with the Style 99 series and is resistant to abrasion from materials like slurry. The Style 77HT is for high temperatures. Finally, the SS77SP mould is meant to be specifically used with Style 33 for more corrosive conditions.
