KE rubber expansion joints are part of a wide range of expansion joint solutions available from EagleBurgmann Australia Pty Ltd .
KE rubber expansion joints are flexible connectors made from natural or synthetic elastomers embedded with special fabrics to provide physical reinforcement.
A proven and flexible solution to accommodate all types of movements of industrial plants and equipment, KE high pressure rubber expansion joints can be made from different rubber materials based on media and application. The expansion joints can take up axial, lateral, angular and torsional movements along with vibrations in piping.
KE rubber expansion joints are typically used in piping systems that transport fluids, slurries or gases under pressure, or under vacuum in a wide range of temperatures.
KE D-Type rubber expansion joints are high quality standard rubber expansion joints in a single sphere moulded design and available in dimensions ranging from DN20 to DN750. Made from standard rubber materials, these expansion joints are also available for special applications in certified rubber material approved for food and drinking water.
KE DFS-Type rubber expansion joints are high quality handmade ‘spool arch’ vulcanised rubber expansion joints available in dimensions ranging from DN50 to DN3600. Similar to the D-Type, these expansion joints are also available in certified rubber material for special applications.
DFS-Type joints are custom made rubber expansion joints and multiple arch designs can be provided to allow for large axial and lateral movements.
Key advantages of KE rubber expansion joints:
- Accommodates pressure loads
- Neutralises axial, lateral, angular and torsional stresses
- Reduces noise
- Isolates sources of vibration
- Easy to install
- Compensates for misalignment
- Prolongs life of motive equipment
- Gaskets or packing are not needed
- Absorbs pulsation of fluid, preventing water hammering to some extent
- Air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems in industrial buildings and vessels
- Central and ancillary power generating stations in industrial buildings, factories, ships and offshore applications
- Sewage disposal and water treatment plant, pumps, etc.
- Process piping in pulp and paper plants
- Piping systems for chilled or hot water in industrial plants
- Cooling systems for power generation
- Feed water and draining lines for water works, sewage, sanitary piping systems etc.
- Oil lines for industrial plants, shipyards, phosphate plants etc.
- Potable water applications
- Food applications
