Red Valve manufactures a range of slip-on expansion joints to suit special low-pressure applications where a quick installation is important.
The SL-50 Expansion Joint is designed to be quickly installed onto standard schedule 40 pipe.
The SL-50 uses slip-on connections with stainless steel mounting bands for a secure connection.
The SL-50 features an inner tube that is chosen to be compatible with the process material, a middle layer containing fabric and wire reinforcement, and an outer layer to protect the joint from occasional contact with oils, corrosion and weathering.
The SL-50 can be constructed in custom lengths, with custom cuff I.D. and custom configurations.
Slip-on Series SL-53 Triple Arch Expansion Joints are designed to allow for greater contraction, expansion and lateral movement than the SL-50.
The internal diameter of the SL-53 is equal to the outside diameter of replacement pipes.
The SL-53 slips over the ends of an open pipe and is secured by clamps.
Construction consists of a tube made of natural or synthetic rubber, a hand fabricated body consisting of high quality synthetic fabric for reinforcement, and a cover wrap used to protect the unit against occasional contact with oil, weathering, ozone and corrosives.
The SL-53 Triple Arch Expansion Joint is simple and economical to use.
The SL-53 Expansion Joint will absorb movement from vibration, thermal expansion and contraction, and allow for misalignment of piping.
