What is Stainless Steel Flanged Rubber Expansion Joint?
Stainless steel flanged rubber expansion joint is a kind of flexible coupling used to connect pipes, tubes or other hoses together. It consists of a flange made of stainless steel for corrosion resistance at both ends and a rubber bellows in the middle that allows movement and misalignment between the two connected components. The balancer is designed to absorb vibration, shock and thermal expansion and compensate for slight misalignments between connected components. It is frequently used in piping systems, particularly in the automotive, chemical and food processing industries, where it can help reduce pressure on rubber expansion joints and prevent leaks. It is widely used to accommodate expansion, contraction or other movement in piping systems or equipment in a variety of industries including oil and gas, chemical processing, power generation and marine engineering.

- They balance the elongation-shortening state resulting from the temperature change, thereby balancing the lateral and angular movement.
- They absorb water hammer and prevent water hammer.
- It has a flanged rotary type structure, so they are easy to assemble.
- No gasket or packing is required.
