An item designed to fit over a packing gland by mating with a surface of a second part which together will retain into a narrow groove or confined space the packing, preformed or o-ring, or an item designed to fit over a rod or shaft, to mate with a stuffing box to confine packing material. It may function as a static or dynamic seal retainer with the packing located on, around, or in the centerline direction of the rod or shaft axis. It may have holes or joints for mounting, be threaded or unthreaded. See also packing nut and packing nut, stuffing tube.
Indicates there is no information in the hmirs. The nsn is in a fsc in table ii of fed std 313 and a msds may be required by the user. The requirement for a msds is dependent on a hazard determination of the supplier or the intended end use of item.

The item does not have a nuclear hardened feature or any other critical feature such as tolerance, fit restriction or application.
HMIC: Hazardous Material Indicator Code. Identifies a hazardous item.
PMIC: Precious Metal Indicator Code. Identifies items that have precious metals as part of their content. precious metals are those metals generally considered to be uncommon, highly valuable, and relatively superior in certain properties such as resistance to corrosion and electrical conductivity.
ESD: Electrostatic Discharge. Indicates if an item is susceptible to electrostatic discharge or electromagnetic interference damage. electrostatic discharge damage occurs when an accumulation of static electricity generated by the relative motion or separation of materials is released to another item by direct contact. electromagnetic interference damage occurs when an item comes into proximity with an electrostatic or magnetic field.
