Uses For Our Rubber Expansion Joints

Rubber Expansion Joints for Water Treatment Plants - (NSW water corporation) where rubber expansion joints are used across numerous water treatment plants in NSW to protect water mains from breakage due to thermal expansion and contraction.

Rubber Expansion Joints (rotary joints) are used on gas booster compressor stations for the conveyance of off-gas from separate gas generation units that operate at pressures up to 4,000 kPa.

Rubber Expansion Joints for Steel Mills - For use in various furnaces in steel mills where rubber expansion joints are used to connect furnace headers together.Rubber Expansion Joints for Steel Mills - where rotary joint is use in continuous casting of steel when the cooling water line needs to be disconnected on breaks and reconnected at a later time.

Rubber Expansion Joints (piston type) where air is transferred through large pressurised fans. They are used to convey the air from one location to another with pressure differentials of up to 400kPa and total lengths over 20 metres.

Rubber Expansion Joints can be used in quarry applications for conveyor systems, where they have the ability for pipe misalignment without affecting thermal expansion or contraction .

Rubber Expansion Joints can also be used in water supply lines where they can be installed vertically or horizontally.

Rubber Expansion Joints are used for conveyor belts, which are constructed of materials that have a tendency to flex from thermal expansion and contraction caused by temperature increase and decrease over time. These rubber expansion joints provide the ability to absorb movement in the conveyor system, thus extending the lifespan of these systems, which can be costly.

Rubber Expansion Joints can be applied in a number of different ways according to your industry needs.

Rubber expansion joints can be exposed or protected depending on application, they can also be used in either high pressure or low pressure applications.

Industries We Serve

We supply expansion joints to the oil, and gas industries.

Mining Industry for conveyor belts, and other applications such as chutes, truck unloading handling systems etc.

Power Generation Industry: We provide Rubber Expansion Joints in major projects such as Snowy 2 Scheme Stage 4, Mortlake Gas Turbine Power Station.

Water Treatment Plant Applications: The NSW Water Corporation use Rubber Expansion Joints on their various water treatment plants across the state.
