Most marine Engineers have a nightmarish experience of leaking stuffing boxes in stem tubes, rudder post, stabilizers, centrifugal pumps, reciprocating pumps, valves, and other equipments having rotating shafts. Some of the problems encountered include : excessive man-hours lost to continuously adjust leaking stuffing boxes; frequent equipment down-time due to premature packing failures; leaking sea water may corrode surrounding metallic structure, loss of expensive fluids due to leakages, frequent searing failures due to contamination of bearings; excessive load on motor leading to burn-outs; excess heat generated results in scoring and pitting of the shaft. Leaking stuffing boxes can jeoparadise functioning of the entire ship. Stoplik offer a range of patented Synthetic Reinforced Yarn Packings and Sealants, specially designed for the marine industry.
