PTFE Lantern Rings
John Crane PTFE lantern rings are widely used in applications where outside lubrication is necessary in order to keep packing lubricated, cool and flushed of abrasives and chemicals. The use of lantern rings greatly increases the life of compression packing, resulting in less maintenance and downtime over the life of the equipment.
PTFE lantern rings will handle a wide range of fluids, offering maximum corrosion resistance and, unlike metallic rings, will not gall or score shafts or sleeves. They have also been successfully used in bearing assemblies as a conduit for grease or oil. The lantern ring works in aiding movement of the lubricant without risk of contamination or excess stuffing box wear.
