We supply industrial Mechanical Seals, Gaskets, Packing, Gasket Material, Hydraulic Seals, O-rings and other seals for your pumps, valves, pipe flange, and other applications!
Welcome To AS&P
American Seal & Packing
We supply industrial seals for all your mechanical sealing devices! Gasket Materials and cut gaskets which we cut in house. Mechanical Face Seals, and mechanical lip seals are on the shelf. Flexible Graphite valve packing sets, and braided packing sets are among our specialties. Newer products such as expanded PTFE (commonly refered to as Teflon) is in stock. If it seals, we sell it.
Supplying o-rings, standard gaskets and common seals is the easy part of our business. Our strength is in our expertise. We can not only make recommendations for problem applications, but we know who in our industry is best at each type of seal product. We know how to give the customer the most for their money.
One area we have been very helpful in is cut gaskets. With our new die less gasket cutting machine we can produce quality parts without having to wait a week for a die make to make a die to produce the gaskets. We also don’t have to pay a die maker (in house or out). Just send us a drawing and we will print the gasket you need, often shipping it out the same day.
There is no sealing device more expensive than a cheap one.
We are unique. Most distributors are tied to one major line and promote only that line. We offer multiple lines because no one sealing company is good at, or most cost effective in all the product segments they offer. Let us help you get the most for your money.

The most common question we get is what should i use, Pump Packing or a Mechanical Seal?
Packing is excellent in a wide range of applications. The factors to consider are is leakage acceptable, and what cost target are you trying to stay under in the short term and long term. Mechanical seals are generally more expensive initially. However the longer you keep your pump in service, the more cost effective a mechanical seal can be. Most packings must leak an average of 6 drops per minute (with the exception of flexible graphite), to lubricate the shaft. American Seal & Packing stocks both packing and mechanical seals, and can help you decide what is best in your application.
