13 November 2017

A.W. Chesterton Company, a leader in fluid sealing technology which has multiple locations throughout North America, has introduced 1726 Low Emissions Packing, a new low emissions sealing solution for isolation valves. 

The packing is designed to help companies in the petrochemical, chemical and oil and gas industries meet and exceed current emissions requirements and improve safety. 1726 is offered in a single spool and fits a wide range of isolation valve applications, allowing companies to simplify inventory and installation. 

The 1726 packing has a carbon core covered with PTFE in a true double-braided formation. Its construction is designed to achieve low emissions sealing levels without the use of costly and time-consuming live loading assemblies.
