    Can someone kindly help me on where I can find the sizing table for the water-lubricated stuffing box as given in the attached file. I'm looking for the design of stuffing box suitable for propeller shaft from 3" up to 8".

    If someone could lead me on where I can find such information or any useful formulas pertaining to the design of stuffing box, I would be very much grateful.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Fast Fred,

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, the links that you've provided doesn't help much as the size of stuffing boxes that I'm looking for, is way out from the ranges in their catalogs. Is there any sources that can connect me to the stuffing boxes mostly used in workboats such as tugs, etc.?

    Thank you.
