Rubber Expansion Joint
are a flexible connector fabricated from natural or synthetic elastomers and fabrics with metallic reinforcements designed to provide stress relief in piping systems due to thermal changes. … Vibration, Pressure Pulsation, and Movement in a Piping System. When flexibility for this movement cannot be designed into the piping system itself, an expansion joint is an ideal solution.
Rubber expansion joints
compensate for lateral, torsional, and angular movements preventing damage and undue downtime of plant operations.
