Universal Gaskets

Compression Packing

Compression packing is a common sealing process where a gland along the top ring is tightened, and the packing is compressed onto the surface to be sealed. Universal Gaskets produce and  supply compression packing for pumps and valves.

Compression packing seals or gland seals are used to seal a variety of fluids under a range of conditions. They are used to help contain water, acids, solvents, gases, oil, and other chemicals that are subjected to various temperatures and pressures.

Most compression seals feature a braided, twisted, plaited, or laminated construction. In addition to packing construction, the use of a wet or dry lubricant should be considered when selecting products.

The range of compression packing that we offer at Universal Gaskets is too extensive to display on this site however we welcome any inquiries.
