Single Sphere Style 15
Single sphere expansion joint style 15 uses floating flange and precision molded synthetic rubber and nylon, and it allows for four-way movements. Style 15 has an excellent ability to absorb vibration and sound, and it is also corrosion-resistant. Style 15 can withstand high pressure; it is so strong that it can withstand burst pressure 60kg/cm2 for size 5/4″ to 8″ and 40kg/cm2 for sizes 10″ to 12″.
ADVANTAGES OF RBM-FLEX
RBM-Flex rubber joints are many times less expensive than the cost of fixing broken pumps and compressors, so you save the cost of unnecessary downtime. Our products are available in a broad spectrum of styles and sizes that eliminates the need for custom made joints.
Vibration and Sound Absorption
Pulsating equipment such as pumps and compressors usually generate undesired noise and vibration, which reduces efficiency in adjacent equipment and impairs working conditions in offices and factories. Rubber expansion
joints prevent destructive vibrations that might otherwise cause ruptures and leaks.
RBM-Flex rubber expansion joints are manufactured to withstand corrosive chemicals. They are finish-coated with HYPALON to provide protection against acid fumes and ozone attack.
Minimum Space Requirement
Flexible, lightweight rubber joints can be inserted in a minimum of space. For pipes with size up to eight inches, only six inches face-to-face is needed.
High Shock Resistance
RBM-Flex joints can withstand strong surge pressures without shattering due to their tensile strength. Our products allow four-way movements and eliminate problems of pips buckling or pulling apart.
RBM-Flex rubber joints slip into place easily because they have extreme flexibility and lightweight.
Greater Movement Recovery
RBM-Flex rubber joints neither crack nor fracture under repeated flexing. Our products have a remarkably long life expectancy, even under adverse conditions, because they are made only from the finest grades of rubber and
Unlike metal expansion joints, flexible rubber joints can stand up to extreme temperature and pressure. Our products, depending on styles, can stand up to pressure of 214 PSIG and a maximum temperature of 240 ºF.
Elimination of Electrolysis
Because of its nonconducting characteristics, rubber makes the best expansion joints for machinery where electrolysis can be a problem. Rubber joints break electrolytic circuits.
Our products are available in an impressive range of types and sizes. They can accommodate pipes from 1 to 24 inches, with additional sizes available on custom orders.
All RBM-Flex rubber expansion joints are subject to TWO years warranty against any manufacture defects. Subject to terms & condition.
