Rubber flexible connectors serve three primary functions in piping systems, to accept all directional movements, minimizing pipe stresses and compensate thermal expansion and contraction. Rubber flexible connectors integrate the functions of expansion joints, flexible connectors and vibration isolators into one. As expansion joints, they compensate for pipe thermal movement, eliminating the need for expansion loops which require additional material and space. As flexible connectors, the flexibility of the EPDM carcass makes them ideal flexible connectors for handling minor misalignment and offset problems. As flexible connectors, they protect piping system against harmful "start-up" and surge forces.
Rubber flexible connectors are used on both hot and chilled water circulation lines, suction and discharge sides of chiller, pumps, cooling towers, etc.
Rubber flexible connector series have four types: Single sphere floating flanges, single sphere restrained flanges, twin sphere floating flanges, twin sphere restrained flanges. Twin sphere type offers more offset to misalignment and thermal movement, more elimination to vibration and noise transmission. Restrained type offers extra protection to connectors.
