U-PAK® injectable pump and valve Sealant
The U-PAK sealants are easily installed with any flat-bladed tool, such as a putty knife or wide-bladed screwdriver. Or, the material can be finger-packed into the box. An anti-extrusion ring of the appropriate material is placed in the stuffing box around the shaft. A second ring is put in place after the sealant is installed. When repacking becomes necessary, you do not have to remove the old packing. Just add more sealant packing material by using the U-PAK injection gun to inject new packing through a fitting installed on the pump or valve stuffing box.
• Reduces operating costs
• Less costly over the life of the pump or valve
• Saves on energy consumption
• Reduces or eliminates downtime
• Extends equipment life
• Never needs replacing
• Reduces shaft and sleeve wear

Selected types available from stock
Utex engineers have developed the largest array of materials and spring designs in the industry, offering greater chemical compatibility, a temperature range from cryogenic to +340°C, and the ability to handle pressures from extreme vacuum up to 2.000 bar.
Our most common compounds include:
These energizers are available in:
• Stainless steel
• Hastelloy® and other corrosionresistant materials.
Other Utex solutions:
SuperGold® pump packing can be used till 121°C and 170 bar without lubrication and 150°C and 345 bar with lubrication.
Black Mamba ™ maintain a high axial load on the v-rings to help energize the rings to make contact with the sealing surfaces. This combination makes for a very abrasion resistant seal, tough enough to handle the most severe dynamic applications, even when passing over flow ports under high differential pressure. The Black Mamba will stand up to proppant and sand control applications and is an excellent alternative to bonded seals. This seal is compact and able to provide very high relative energization with little gland space
