Expansion Joint features lightweight elastomer composition.

October 27, 2004

Offered in EPDM and Nitrile tube materials, Model 320EZ(TM) compensates for movements in piping systems due to thermal and mechanical vibration and growth, protecting pipes and flanges from pre-mature cracking and breakage. Ranging in size from 1½-20 in. ID, expansion joint can replace filled arch, flowing arch, standard, and wide arch designs. Lower spring rates and reaction forces allow customers to use lighter anchoring system and less reinforcement. Read More

Expansion Joint overcomes temperature swings.

April 6, 2004

PVC and CPVC Expansion Joints suit applications where air or fluid can experience 30°F shift in temperature. Inner and outer telescoping tubes allow mounting between 2 fixed points. Inner tube expands and contracts against anchored outer tube to provide flexibility, while triple O-ring design enhances strength and rigidity. Operating ambient temperature range is from 60-90°F, and operating fluid temperature range is 50-80°F. Read More
