HOLZ Rubber Company manufactures piping expansion joints for every industrial scenario or work environment, all of which are available in Canada from Northern Industrial Supply Company (NISCO). This portfolio includes the Series 300 elastomer piping expansion joints, which are specially handcrafted and designed to absorb motion and displacement between pipe flanges.
The HOLZ Series 300 consists of one-piece, elastomer piping expansion joints with an exclusive H-R double-protected construction. Like other HOLZ non-metallic joints, they have been constructed out of the finest materials with painstaking fabrication techniques since 1962.
Right for wastewater, slurry, sludge
Series 300 joints have been used and proven in tough services for years, and their ability to absorb motion and displacement makes them ideal for pipe-flange applications involving high shock and vibration. Recommended for applications involving wastewater, slurry, or sludge, these expansion joints can withstand temperatures of up to 148 degrees Celsius, while the Viton tube/cover can handle up to 200 degrees Celsius.
Advantages of these elastomer piping expansion joints include the following:
- Management of a wide range of temperatures and pressures, including high extremely high levels, which raises efficiency of piping systems;
- Prevention of pipe bucking and fractures;
- Exclusive ring-enveloper system to hold steel body rings in place;
- Can be custom-engineered and constructed according to client specifications;
- Can be designed for full vacuum service; and
- Suitability for all general applications, including severe and harsh environments.
Available in sizes from ½ to 108, Series 300 joints each have a tube constructed with a protective, leak-proof lining made out of synthetic or natural rubber. The tube prevents materials from penetrating the carcass or body, which is made of fabric, or metal when necessary. The expansion joint also has a cover, carcass fabric reinforcement that acts as the flexibility and supporting member between tube and cover, and metal reinforcement consisting of wire or solid steel rings imbedded in the carcass for strengthening.
NISCO remains Canada’s primary source for HOLZ expansion joints, including Series 300. These products have been helping companies save money and boost productivity for many years.
