FDA Compression Packing

FTL has a selection of compression packings which have been specifically designed to meet the demands of food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

These specialised braids make use of the FDA-compliant properties of PTFE, with fibers and lubricants which eliminate any contamination risk, safeguarding the end consumer.

Each of the packing choices highlighted below perform well for strength and wear resilience, while also being resistant to the high temperature and chemical aggressiveness of SIP and CIP cleaning processes utilised in food and pharmaceutical process applications.

Common applications for these compression packing grades include:

  • Process pumps
  • Valves
  • Mixers
  • Agitators and other rotating equipment.
