- Industry / Applications
The features and benefits of our performance expansion joint designs will achieve these critical elements by absorbing system forces and displacements, replacing them with the expansion joint’s low stiffness (spring rate). Additionally, they are designed to reduce noise and vibration, have a cycle life in the tens of millions, compensate for misalignments, provide access to piping and equipment, and relieve pipe and anchor stresses.
The selection and application of General Rubber’s unrestrained expansion joints represent the most cost-effective arrangement when they are used in rigid piping systems with main anchors and numerous guides at specific spacing.
The selection and application of General Rubber’s advanced restrained expansion joints can be used to provide system flexibility while restraining pressure thrust forces and other external loads. This approach allows for an optimal design with a smaller footprint. The economic benefits of using advanced restrained expansion joints also include—but are not limited to—fewer guides, anchors and supports.
