In addition to Metal Expansion Joints and Braided Flexible Connectors, Flexicraft offers a versatile range of Rubber Expansion Joints with 12 elastomer options including EPDM, Neoprene, Butyl, Buna-N/Nitrile, Teflon/TFE/FEP, and more for compatibility with almost any application. Most are generally rated for 200-250 degrees F, and for hotter applications consider a Metal Expansion Joint – temperature is usually the primary factor determining the life of a Rubber Expansion Joint.
Expansion Joints allow axial compression or extension, lateral offsets, angular deflection, and even some torsion, and can be used for:
- Correcting piping misalignments, which can be caused by the original installation or from systems settling over time
- Isolating vibration and noise from pumps and other equipment
- Absorbing thermal expansion in piping
