TP-4000 Sealing Compound

TP-4000 Aragraphe™ Fiber Mechanical Sealing Compound will seal most rotating or reciprocating equipment. Self-lubricating and self-cooling, TP-4000 needs no seal or cooling water.  Flush systems are eliminated and pumps operate with zero leakage. Maintenance is simple with our online injection systems .

TP-4000 will also seal valves the first time for the last time. Its special blend of lubricants will not dry or harden over long periods of time, leaving valves well sealed and easy to open.

TP-4000 is not recommended for pulp mill black liquor, lime slurries, polar petroleum distillates, nitric acid and with brass or bronze shaft sleeves.Please see TP-4800 and TP-5400
