Live Loaded Packing

SV Live Loaded Pkg


A Strahman Live-Loaded Packing system for valve applications helps preserve preload in packed valves and sustains the tightness of the packing to ensure proper valve sealing and compression. Live-loaded packing reduces the need for routine packing maintenance. Also, it offers an excellent benefit for critical valves, such as those governed by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules.

The spring washer disc is added to the gland follower of a packed valve to create a controlled, sustainable amount of tension in the packing set. Properly executed, live loaded packing can significantly reduce the likelihood of valve leakage. Our skilled engineers will design a stack-up of spring washers to maintain proper gland tension for the valve that minimizes emissions and extends maintenance intervals, especially for valves subject to large temperature fluctuations or frequent use. Contact us today for more information.

Please note that the above product image is representative of products in this series and while we try to be as accurate as possible, the product you receive may slightly differ depending on valve size. Please refer to data sheets for dimensions and technical drawings, if applicable.
