Rubber expansion joints are used in a variety of applications.Rubber expansion joints are able to absorb movements in all directions. They are very flexible which allows excellent absorption of vibrations. The strength of the bellowsis realized by Nylon reinforcement wires.
An EPDM expansion joint offers a number of advantages, and is usually used in piping to prevent damage to surrounding structures. The EPDM expansion joints help to provide relief from thermal, extension and contraction stresses in pipes or duct installations.
The EPDM rubber expansion joint can stand temperatures of up to 110-130°C and diluted bases and acids. The rubber EPDM expansion joint are able to resist UV rays, weathering and is suitable for outdoor applications.
There’s continual movement in these systems because of varying temperatures, and this is caused by the temperatures and composition of materials or gasses that pass through the system.
EPDM Rubber expansion joints help to absorb the movement and this keeps the surrounding duct or pipe work from pulling apart, buckling or leaking. It’s an easy way to cut down on maintenance cost, because replacing duct or pipe work could be expensive.
