Chesterton Soot blower Sealing System

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ The Chesterton 5700/5700B Soot blower Kit combines exclusive materials to seal the stuffing box. The main die-formed, inhibited graphite rings are self-lubricating, low friction, and high purity. Manufactured from pure graphite ribbon tape without any fillers, binders, or resins, each ring is engineered to an accurate specific density for compression resistance, elasticity, and retention of size and shape all of w​hich are necessary to provide the best possible sealing performance.

 

  • ​The 1600 end rings add both sealing and anti-extrusion properties to the five ring set
  • The 5150 Live Loading Assemblies are used to maintain constant gland load while compensating for in-service consolidation of the packing
  • The split bronze bushing is used to reduce stuffing box depth while acting as a bearing to maintain lance tube concentricity to the stuffing box in blowers that require more than a conventional five-ring set of packing

 

The kit includes:

  • Chesterton 5300 GTP sealing rings
  • Chesterton 1600 end-rings
  • Chesterton 5150 live loading assemblies
  • A new split bronze bushing ​
