Hose Accessories - Expansion Joints
The primary function of a Rubber Expansion Joint is to provide pipe motion compensation in as short a space as possible in a piping system. Rubber Expansion joints also treat the problem of: Vibration, Induced Forces, Noise, Shock, Electrolysis, or Corrosion.
Expansion Joints are designed to accept axial and lateral movements in accordance with recommended design characteristics. If these movements are exceeded, damage, including rupture, may occur. To prevent this possibility, CONTROL UNITS designed to limit movement are recommended. If the piping is not properly anchored, control units must be used.
