Garlock 432 CHEVRON® 

Manufactured with a proprietary hinge-like design, Garlock’s original CHEVRON® V-rings seal automatically and react to even minor changes in pressure. When combined into multi-ring packing sets, the design allows each lip to seal independently and distribute pressure throughout the packing set, resulting in a safe and reliable seal.


Garlock’s hydraulic v-ring packing is constructed of custom-made rubber compounds and polymers shaped in our proprietary Chevron® design, to give you the best sealing and longest lasting products. Style 432 is our performance grade medium hardness Nitrile (NBR) rubber reinforced with cotton fabric and is our most popular style for use in water and oil. Available in over 7,000 sizes, this product is made in 3 standard designs: male, female and v-ring, and is recommended for pressures from 500-2,500psi. Add premium grade 260/261RH adaptors to increase the pressure rating to 4,500psi.
