Rubberised Expansion Compensators

Rubberised Expansion Compensators:

  • Designed for use with aggressive media and especially being suited to wet chemical service and Flue Gas Desulphurisation plants, (F.G.D.), where condensation of the gas media creates a highly acidic liquor which is not compatible with our Fabric range of Expansion Compensators.
  • PTFE Drains can be easily incorporated into the design to allow unwanted condensate to be removed.
  • Insensitive to many corrosive fluids.
  • Facilitates large movements in multi-directions, isolates vibration and compensates for misalignment whilst remaining suitable for a wide range of operating temperatures and extreme pressures.
  • Suitable for continuous temperatures up to 200°C (depending on the rubber type) and pressures up to 5100mm WG (50 kPa).
  • Joints are manufactured from a single elastomeric layer of material, being  laminated with one or more reinforcement layers.
  • Joints are vulcanised to form a solid, integral component – this joining process can be carried out within factory conditions or site joining.
  • Unlike metallic joints, elastomeric joints can easily absorb multidirectional expansion movements and vibrations and compensate for resulting misalignments.
  • Available in a wide range of sizes and geometries.
