Energised Division

The Geegraf Energised System is a full range of products designed to eliminate costly plant leakage problems. Each component in the Energised System is the result of our commitment and on-going research and development programme to produce the most effective products for industry. This research, combined with the use of only the best available materials and production methods, brings the following benefits:

  • Minimum leakage – Drastically cutting maintenance costs
  • Elimination of on-line leak sealing
  • Automatic gland adjustment – Maintains packing pressure
  • Reduction in valve stem pitting – due to corrosion inhibitors
  • Improved plant efficiency
  • Maximum packing life – Using calculated torque settings

Whether unpacking valves and pumps is a part of your regular maintenance programme or an unscheduled necessary response to leakage or failure, it is invariably a difficult and unpleasant task. Removing worn, dried out, carbonised and rock hard packing is timing consuming. Particularly where the removal of injected sealing compounds is concerned. 

The whole labour intensive process increases pressure on engineers striving to reduce downtime and costs.


Traditional methods of unpacking can often result in valve stem / stuffing box damage, leading to costly product losses and inevitable further repairs.
Energised Portable Water Jet Packing Extractor is the practical solution now available. The system uses micro bursts of a focused water jet at very high pressure to remove valve stem packing, pump packing and flange gasketing materials of all kinds. It is especially suited for use where asbestos is known to be present as the hydration eliminates hazardous dust particles.


The equipment is designed for totally safe use by a single operator and is so portable and effective that the unpacking of 30 valves in a day is not uncommon. The savings in downtime and labour costs can be significant. There is also peace of mind in knowing that the process is entirely non-destructive to valve and pump components, leaving them in the optimum condition for resealing.


In addition to the full packing extraction and re-packing service, Energised Portable Water Jet Packing Extractor is available for hire with either a trained operator or, if you wish to use your own personnel, onsite training is available. The system can also be purchased, and is supplied with a comprehensive training and maintenance programme.

 

“NO COST” ONSITE SURVEYS, TRAINING AND INSULATION SEMINARS

 

Geegraf GDS – Gland Disc Springs

Computer designed disc springs automatically adjust the gland to maintain a constant optimum sealing pressure on the packing set. Prevents leakage due to wear, vibration, consolidation and thermal cycling.

 Geegraf ER – End Rings

Manufactured from high purity yarn, ER is a low-friction, high-density anti-extrusion ring. Having no fillers or binders it withstands high temperatures in non-oxidising atmospheres with no apparent volume loss.

Geegraf DFR – Die Formed Rings

Geegraf DFR die formed inhibited graphite rings are a high purity, low friction, self-lubricating ring manufactured from pure graphite tape. To provide improved sealing performance DFR are engineered to an accurate specific density for compression resistance, elasticity and retention of shape and size, resulting in exceptional sealing performance.

 Geegraf SCS – Split Carbon Sleeves

To allow the use of the optimum ring packing set, a high purity split carbon sleeve is used as a spacer in the bottom of the stuffing box.

 Geegraf Energised Flange System

Maintains clamping force under all conditions

 The single disc solution to leakage which brings you these benefits:

 

  • A constant, uniform clamping force
  • Compensation for thermal expansion and contraction
  • The dampening of vibrational shock
  • The prevention of gasket blowouts and reaction to pressure surges

End Rings

Geegraf ER

Anti-extrusion ring manufactured from high purity yarn. Having no fillers or binders it withstands high temperatures in non-oxidising atmospheres with no apparent volume loss. Commonly known as braided packing, this can be supplied with or without Inconel reinforcement, this product is strong and durable mostly used as packing in valves can offer various lengths and cross sections, we also have the ability to press creating a formed ring with either scarf cut or butt cut for use in valve stems.
