Tiger Pak  – Plastic Injection Packing

 

Tiger Pak Blue

TIGER PAK (The original, now usually called Tiger Pak Blue) is a pliable,
injection-gun type plastic bulk packing with a highTFE content and a
non-asbestos binder blended with a chemical and
solvent resistant synthetic oil and selected anti-extrusion fibers.
This matrix is formulated to energize split-box type V-packing gland
designs and forms a positive stem seal at pressures up to 30,000 psi.
The effective temperature range is from -85 deg. to 450 deg. F. (600 deg. F.
with several days of additional “top off” injections.)

Tiger Pak Blue (MSDS)

Additional benefits are:

  1. It can be injected through a ball check fitting in the field to pack off or rejuvenate leaking stem packing glands.
  2. It can be furnished in selected strip sizes with a semi-solid TFE mixture
    applied on one side to impart and maintain low operating torques for
    gate valve stems.
  3. It has a unique characteristic of
    “lubricity with tack”. This feature allows high metal adhesion under
    extreme pressure while imparting low operating torques. Many other
    types of packing will tack to a valve stem so positively that they are
    removed from the gland during actuation, resulting in higher operating
    torques.
  4. It contains anti-extrusion fibers that effectively bridge damaged seal leak paths.

TIGER PAK is suitable for application on distillate petroleum
solvents, crude oil, LPG, natural gas, steam and aqueous solutions,
glycols, water, vegetable oils, dilute acids, alkalies, Carbon Dioxide,
Hydrogen Sulfide, and hydro-lubes

For unleaded gasoline, MTBE and natural gas condensate service Tiger-PAK “F” is recommended.
