The Rains-Flo Sealing Concept began with the invention by founder Robert H. Rains of a totally new and unique metallic packing - made with materials which would undergo cold flow to form a self-lubricating, bearing-like, non-abrasive seal packing.
The reasons behind the widespread success and continued use of the Rains-Flo GFM® (Granulated, Flowable, Material) Packing Sealing Systems are:
Compression packings potentially provide the easiest and most economical method for sealing. Rains-Flo Sealing Systems are your best choice for premium packing/sealing performance. Fulfilling the sealing requirements of water pumps is as equally refined for cost and reliability as for the toughest multi-stage, abrasive applications. The evaluation of total sealing costs, when comparing the Rains-Flo Sealing Systems to mechanical seals or conventional packings, reveals that the long-term reliability of Rains-Flo Sealing Systems gives the best economic results. Rains-Flo Collars provide the long-term resiliency. Rains-Flo GFM® Packings provide extended lubrication to the collars, increased shaft/sleeve life and, through "Add-A-Ring Maintenance", provides the longest packing life by reducing the need for complete packing replacements. Rains-Flo Sealing Systems offer the complete sealing solution for all your compression packing needs.
Rains-Flo Sealing Systems have been sealing pumps, process equipment, mixers, augers and valves for many years with great success. Rains-Flo has designed packing systems to dramatically improve the sealing performance of your equipment. Our packing systems are called a Rains-Flo Sealing System. Once Rains-Flo Sealing Systems have been installed in your equipment, Rains-Flo will outperform any other type or brand of packing available in today's market. Rains-Flo will allow the equipment to stay operating for a longer period of time with less maintenance, reducing operating costs. Rains-Flo Sealing Systems also will give sealing performance comparable to a mechanical seal without the high cost and catastrophic failures.
Rains-Flo Sealing Systems have been involved with many different applications and industries such as: Adhesives, Asphalt, Chemical, Gypsum, Ink, Mining, Molasses, Petroleum, Paint, Power, Pulp & Paper, Rendering, Resin, Sewage, Sludge, Slurry, Soap, Starch, Water, etc.
