  • 3150 Expansion Joint: designed to meet applications that require pressure ratings up to 150 PSI in a compact length
  • Externally Pressurized Expansion Joints: 150# and 300# pressure designs; maintenance-free and ready for direct encasement
  • Rubber Expansion Joints: available in sphere type or wide-arch; single, twin or reducing configurations

Pump Connectors

Pump ConnectorPump Connectors are designed to compensate for multi-plane axial, lateral and angular movement in non-torsional applications.

Pump connector features include:

  • Maximum vibration absorption
  • Advanced cycle life
  • Soft spring rate
  • Ease of installation and maximum safety
  • Available in 100% stainless steel

Pipe Alignment Guides

Flex-Weld pipe guides are designed to ensure positive pipe alignment by restricting lateral pipe movement while allowing for movement along the axis of the pipe.

Pipe Guide

Pipe alignment guide features include:

  • Constructed of carbon steel and coated for protection
  • Spider-housing design ensures positive pipe alignment, protecting pipe, expansion devices, and mechanical equipment
  • Bolted, split-housing construction designed for easy assembly
  • Axial movement selection specific to application requirements
  • Pre-insulated models match insulated system piping to reduce time and labor on the job
