Selection of Materials

The proper selection of packing materials is dependent on the operating conditions of the equipment. Six parameters of the equipment must be known before a proper packing recommendation can be made. The acronyn "STAMPS" is used to gather this information:

S  = Size - cross section
T  = Temperature - of media being sealed
A  = Application - type of equipment (i.e. pumps, valves, etc.)
M  = Media - material being sealed
P  = Pressure - of media being sealed
S  = shaft speed in FPM (pumps only)

Warning - Properties/applications shown throughout this Website are typical. Your specific application should not be undertaken without independent study and evaluation for suitability. For specific application recommendations, consult Beacon Gasket & Seals Co. Failure to select the proper sealing products could result in property damage and/or serious person injury. Performance data published in this Website has been developed from field testing, customer field reports and/or in-house testing.
