Asbestos rope is made of braided asbestos fiber and its section tends to be round, rectangle or square. It is widely used in centrifugal pumps, compressors, vacuum pumps, mixers and ship propeller shaft seals, piston pumps and so on. It has a good thermal conductivity, acid and alkali resistance. Compared with other sealing materials, asbestos rope can be molded into any shape and operates well at extreme temperatures. Especially, it has a ability of halting the spread of fire.
Note: All asbestos ropes can be reinforced by steel wire, cooper wire, or nickel wire.
Pure asbestos rope
Pure asbestos rope is designed for static sealing and operates well at high pressure and temperature working environments.
Twisted asbestos rope
A roll of white twisted asbestos ropeIt is manufactured by two or more strands of long asbestos (chrysotile) and widely used as caulking, sealing and heat insulation on thermal installations and heat conduction systems. Ideal working temperature ranges from 250 - 550℃. The diameter of the round section is from Φ3.0mm to 50mm.
