Sermatech Introduces Flexible Couplings, Expansion Joints and Bellows Made from PFA



Limerick, PA, Feb. 3 - Sermatech Surface Engineering announced today it is introducing Flexijoint® expansion joints and BlueLine(TM) flexible couplings, expansion joints and bellows
made from PFA for use in ultrapure environments where it is essential that the process be viewed. In all other applications PTFE Flexijoints are recommended.

Flexijoint expansion joints are flexible connectors and tremor barriers designed to compensate for misalignment, absorb expansion and contraction, and isolate vibration and shock in process piping and vessels. Flexijoint expansion joints made from PFA are manufactured in diameters from 1" to 8"*. Features include:
o Uniform wall thickness
o Both convolution root and sidewall support
o Protection from over compression and over expansion
o Easy installation
o External convolution protection

BlueLine flexible couplings, expansion joints and bellows made from PFA are manufactured in diameters from 1" to 8"*. Features include:
o Uniform wall thickness
o Protection for fragile FRP, carbon or glass equipment and nozzles
o Superior corrosion resistance in acidic and caustic environments
o Low spring rates with short face-to-face dimensions
