The installation of these products can increase operating costs (power, water, maintenance) and risk of premature failure as well as unscheduled shutdown. Such problems can cost a lot of time and money.
But since packings look alike, how can your company avoid this? To help, Gore created the Seal of Assurance Program. Through a global network of authorized braiders, this program ensures that every fiber used to braid the packing is a GORE GFO Fiber. Look for the 100% GFO seal on the box and print right on the packing – it’s the only packing that is identified this way!
Seal of Assurance Braiders
The following table lists the approved Seal of Assurance braiders and their respective GFO styles. Attention should be paid to precise identification of styles. Usually portfolios of braiders contain both packings made of 100% GORE GFO Fiber as well as look-alikes.
