American Seal and Packing
American Seal and Packing has been assiting industry with mechanical seals for over 30 years. The term mechanical seals is generally applied to flat face seals, but also is claimed by the lip seal industry.
Mechanical seals including Single Spring, Cartridge, Metal Bellows, and multiple designs. For your pumps.
Pump / Valve Packing
Sealing pumps and valves with quality industrial packing.
PTFE, Graphite, Kevlar, GFO
A staple to sealing valves and pumps, we stock many sizes and materials. Including Reciprocating pump seals.
From simple Nitrile o-rings for oil to PTFE, Viton, EPDM, Silicone, Neoprene, Kalrez
Flexible Graphite, Rubber, Non-asbestos, PTFE, Beater Add, and many others
Spiral Wound Gaskets
Equals to Flexitallic from high-quality brands Lamons, Leader, Durlon, FMI, 3S
Quality materials and brands including Durlon, Grafoil, Garlock, Klinger, Teadit, Sichem, JM Clipper
PTFE / EPTFE
Excellent for chemical and higher temperature applications to 650 F (EPTFE)
Die Formed Packing
Die Formed braided packing and Flexible Graphite
Flexible Graphite die formed rings, sheet, packing and gaskets
Lip Seals to seal your rotating shafts. Hardened rubber and metal-clad outer ring. Both with and without a spring energizer.
Injectable packing allows you to pack the pump without shutting it down.
We offer multiple mechanical seal designs including: Single Cartridge, Double Cartridge, Single Spring, Metal Bellows, and Muti-Spring seals.
Pump / Valve Packing
Braided compression packing comes in many forms to seal both pumps and valves including Flexible Graphite, Carbon, PTFE, Nomex, Kevlar, Aramid, Acrylic, Kynol, GFO, Amerilon, and Marine
We cut gaskets with a CNC knife edge router eliminating the need to pay for dies.
O-rings are the most common seal used. We offer Imperial, Metric, BS and JS standard sizes. Many materials available.
We have the material and the technical expertise to tell you what gasket material is the best choice for your application.
Nothing seals as well as Flexible Graphite. We offer Grafoil, AS&P, SGL, and Sichem brands to give you the best material, delivery, and cost.
PTFE / EPTFE
When you expand PTFE it is no longer a hard plastic. You then maintain all the benefits of PTFE with the added benefits of it sealing faster, better, and with less torque.
Sprial wound, RTJ, Kamm Gaskets and heat exchanger gaskets are all examples of metal gaskets we supply.
Graphite sets are our specialty!
We have produced flexible graphite sets to solve industries problems for over 30 years. Flexible graphite’s unique properties make it a solution to high-temperature and Chemical applications. Because flexible graphite is so malleable it will conform to irregularities making it the perfect sealing material. With very few exceptions (sulfuric and Nucleic acid), flexible graphite is compatible with most chemicals.
We stock multiple versions of flexible graphite packing including with carbon corners, with some Inconel, and with Inconel wrapped around each yarn.
Problem applications require custom solutions. Flexible graphite reinforced with Inconel wire, or with added endcaps both extend the pressure sealing capability of our seals. We have solutions for API 589 at API 607 Fire safe seal sets and API 622 and API 624 emission control packing sets.
There is no sealing device more expensive than a cheap one.
We are unique. Most distributors are tied to one major line and promote only that line. We offer multiple lines because no one sealing company is good at, or most cost effective in all the product segments they offer. Let us help you get the most for your money.
Compression Packing is another specialty for AS&P. We do supply packing for fugitive emissions. Standard packings include packing for oils, steam, water, food, pulp & paper, etc. We supply AS&P brands as well as popular brands including Sepco, Utex, Latty, and Garlock.
Selecting the right gasket material will define how long your gaskets will last. After over 30 years of experience, we know what materials will last the longest, and what will solve problem applications. Dealing with every type of industry and solving gasket sealing applications from each of them, we know our stuff.
Brands we offer:
Durlon – Gasket Resources – Thermoseal – Klinger – Sichem – Sepco – JM Clipper Utex Industries – Armstrong – Grafoil – Garlock – Teadit – AS&P
We strive to provide solutions to difficult sealing problems.
Unlike most distribution companies, we specialize only in sealing products. As a result, we know more about the products we sell than the price. We know how it is made, and what applications it is best suited for. If we don’t know, we have engineers that can provide us with solutions to unique and difficult problem applications. Give us a chance, you just might be pleasantly surprised.
