Piping expansion joints
The different types of piping expansion joints available include:
- Original hand-crafted elastomeric expansion joints that are ideal for applications involving high shock and vibration.
- Hand-built pressure piping joints that use technology from the tire industry. They offer superior performance thanks to polyester tire cord and modified arch construction. They are suitable for applications with high flow velocity.
- Lightweight expansion joints that save time and money by reducing requirements for anchoring systems and reinforcement.
- Molded expansion joints that are available in EPDM, nitrile, and Teflon-lined varieties.
- Floating flange rubber expansion joints that can improve efficiency with exceptional resistance to shock and vibration.
- Vibration dampeners expansion joints that are well suited to installation on pump discharge or suction sides where turbulence is an issue.
