The industrial growth and the increasingly exasperated plants conditions require specific seals suitable for the intended service.

ARTEMA® provides proven sealing technology to a wide range of industries. We have more than 20 years of experience with various types of applications: from classic to extremely difficult ones.

Our packings are designed and made to resist the high temperature applications and the abrasive fluids use.
With continuous research and development of new types of technical yarns ARTEMA® is ready to help their customers and maintenance stuff in particular to choose the packing that ensures better efficiency, reducing wear and losses, economizing expensive products and energy and ultimately improving functionality and safety to guarantee environmental protection.

There are several special packings ( KN 3550/K, SLADE® 3300/G, SLADE®3300/CJK, NX 3637) that we have designed and built by maintainers request. These packings with mixed weaves of yarns, lubricators and particular densities solve specific problems and have been tested in most plants and their specific applications for over twenty years.

Also the wide range of standard packings (graphite, carbon, aramid, PTFE, synthetic and vegetable fibers) undergo specific pre-treatments that we require from the yarn producers, so that we are ready to subsequently continuously impregnate yarn-by-yarn and under pressure the threads before braiding.
These expensive treatments give the yarn high lubrication properties, reduce friction, improve the homogeneity, fibers regularity and stability, increase chemical resistance, seal quality, durability and general braid efficiency.

All our packings are completely diagonally interlaced at heart with supporting corners and controlled tension of the spindles to obtain the perfect density which is the origin of the flexibility, elasticity and compactness of the ARTEMA®'s quality.
This sophisticated made with the modern interlacing machine with up to 48 spindles (depending on the packing section) weaving allows each yarn to pass diagonally through the heart of the packing at an angle of 45° creating a structure where each thread is an integral part and contributes to resistance of the whole braid.
To seal the gaps and for the initial break-in a further impregnation of inert lubricants is applied during the braiding.

The choice of packing based only on the operating values (temperature, pressure, fluid speed and type of movement) regardless the age, conditions and the many other variables is very difficult.
For this reason before the next order of packing consult our technical department. Before providing you with a solution we prefer to listen to you and suggest the right intervention after examining a series of possibilities.
