Spiral gaskets are commonly used in the petrochemical, chemical, nuclear, food industry, etc. This type of seal is made up of a set of simultaneous windings of metal strips (usually stainless steel), and spacers (PTFE, graphite or mica).
Fitex provides you with several types of sealing braids, each with its own characteristics. Our yarns are available in around thirty different varieties: synthetic, cotton, PTFE, aramid, etc. Round or square in shape, the braids are used in cases of high speed rotary seals, high temperatures, or in the case of concentrated chemicals. Thus, you will inevitably find the sealing braid that will best meet your needs!
Polytetrafluoroethylene tape (or more simply PTFE) is used in a wide range of activities because it is hydrophobic (it will not be able to get wet in contact with a liquid). It is often used in connection of water networks (potable or not), for high pressure lines, as well as with most chemicals. Finally, it helps prevent friction between 2 solid parts.
This last aspect is very important when used with a mechanical seal.

A mechanical seal is a simple technique for retaining fluid inside a container (typically pumps, mixers, etc.), in which a shaft rotates through a fixed housing. It may also be the housing that revolves around the shaft. The challenge of a mechanical seal is then to prevent a large amount of liquid from escaping from the container, while minimizing friction during rotation.
