To begin rubber expansion joints are made to help with stress, thermal growth, movement, vibration, or pressure which can happen in a pipe system. Therefore, picking the right rubber expansion joint can be helpful. Rubber joints can be made from many different types of rubber material. Also they are very flexible. In addition they are good for sound, thermal energy, and shock.
Also rubber joints can also be called non metallic expansion joints. Additionally, elastomer joints are widely used to provide ways to relieve movement stresses, reduce noise, isolate vibration, and compensate for misalignment. Also non metallic expansion joints can help with problems like shock, noise, corrosion, abrasion.
Furthermore, rubber expansion joints are used more often on pumps than metal expansion joints. Dannenbaum LLC has different types of rubber joints.
Also a rubber joint can have different components. Firstly is the body of the rubber joint which is the bellow. Secondly is the end connection. Then is the sleeve. Last is the limit rods.
Additionally we supply different types of rubber expansion joints and other products. For instance we supply check valves, PTFE pipe expansion joints, ducting expansion joints, braided flexible metal connectors, and pipe penetration seals.
Rubber Pipe Expansion Joints
An elastomer or rubber manufactured pipe expansion joint is the most flexible connector for a pipe expansion joint application. Due to their flexible makeup, they are able to provide stress relief in a pipe system. Thus is due to thermal and mechanical vibration or movement. Moreover, they provide a leak-proof protective barrier. Also they are used regularly in air conditioning, venting and cooling systems, petrochemical, and industrial applications.
Non Metallic Joints
A rubber joint and a fabric joint is a non metallic joint. Also they are made from a flexible connector, fabricated of natural or synthetic elastomers, fluoroplastics and fabrics. Furthermore, if necessary, metallic reinforcements used to absorb movements in a piping system while containing pressure and a medium running through it.
Non metallic joints are great for lateral movements. They produce thrust forces when pressurized. Non metallic expansion joints significantly reduce the undesirable transmission in piping systems.
In addition, the elastomeric composition of the joint acts as a dampener. Therefore, it absorbs the greatest percentage of perceptible noise and vibration. However, rubber joints in most cases are easy to install. In addition to we supply most types of non metallic joints, for example we supply check valves, PTFE, ducting, rubber spool type and etc…
