Style 2214 is a proprietary braid-over-core construction, using a special high temperature, Inconel reinforced fiber and a non-hardening core. The packing is impregnated with a high temperature resistant compound, and coated with fine particles of graphite to act as a surface lubricant. This style is also treated with a sacrificial material to alleviate electrolytic action.
Style 2214 is a firm, high density packing. It can handle steam, most chemicals, mild acids, and alkalies. It is excellent for use in steam turbines, high temperature motor-actuated slide valves, and in high pressure/high temperature valving in general.
