FluoroPac Soot Blower Packing Set


Soot blower carriages need constant monitoring and repair. High temperature steam passing by the gear box and through the lance bearing hub causes lubricant breakdown leading to seal, bearing and gear falure. As a result, there is constant maintenace, seal leakage, equipment replacement, and operating inefficiencies.


UFC Fluorogreen has produced the FluoroPac Soot Blower Packing set using E-900 to protect high temperature machinery against wear in inefficiencies. This gives FluoroPac a decisive advantage in regards to in-service life and the ability to maintain a seal while supporting the insulated feed tube. FluoroPac has no wire reinforcement to wear in the feed tube and will not absorb water. With a modified "V" style configuration FluoroPac Soot Blower Packing is priced competatively and out performs more traditional lines of soot blower packing.


All FluoroPac Soot Blower Packings are compression auto-molded from E-900 Fluoroblack material. Fluoroblack E-900 is chemically modified containing a specially formulated electrocarbon filler material and is an excellent material for prolonged service against high concentrations of hydrofluric acid. This combination of materials may make E-900 Fluoroblack the lowest deforming PTFE based material available.


A major pulp and paper mill in the South has stated, "FluoroPac has outperformed all other packing we've tried. It's lasted in conditions for months when other packing has only lasted days."
