Rubber Expansion Joints

General Rubber

General Rubber

All piping systems require some degree of flexibility. General Rubber’s rubber expansion joints provide the ultimate in flexibility with their resilient construction and all directional movement capability. Rubber expansion joints, as manufactured by General Rubber Corp, can accommodate axial, lateral, angular and torsional movements, as well as absorbing vibration and accommodating for piping misalignment. The rubber expansion joint provides this functionality in the smallest space possible. This level of performance cannot be achieved with alternatives such as, large pipe loops, metal expansion joints, or grooved couplings.

Product Benefits

  • Large All-Directional Movements are absorbed
  • Noise and vibration are reduced
  • Long-lasting
  • Compensate for misalignments
  • Access is provided to piping and other equipment
  • Pipe/Anchor stress is reduced
  • Resistant to chemicals and abrasion

Types of Expansion Joints

  • Maxi-Joint (various styles)
  • Performance Rubber (various styles)
  • Restrained Rubber (various styles)
  • Advanced Restrained Rubber (various styles)
  • Ducting Expansion (various styles)
