Non-Metallic Expansion Joints
To help compensate for compressive and elongating movements in a piping system, an elastomeric expansion joint is often beneficial. This is a flexible connector typically constructed of rubber and fabric. There are several benefits to using an expansion joint, including dampening sound and lessening vibration while allowing for angular and torsional movement. In addition, expansion joints prolong life in bearings and oil seals.
For the most effective use and life, retaining rings are always recommended with expansion joints. Control units may also be needed to prevent over-elongation. Atlantech can provide elastomeric expansion joints in any range of materials and arch configurations to ensure your piping systems operate at their most efficient.
