For providing the hermetic gland joint, it is necessary to prevent the leakage of the working medium, being under pressure. This leakage could occur through the gland in the following directions:

  • along the surface of rod (spindle, shaft) and inside part of packing;
  • along the wall of gland chamber and outside part of packing;
  • through the pores of gland packing itself, if it would be insufficiently packed.
