Various pipelines are liable to undesirable pressure tension due to thermal expansion. If not eliminated, the thermal expansion could cause the pipeline breakdown.
Rubber compensators are very useful devices to eliminate this danger. They also allow a certain deflection and misalignment (both angular and axial) of the connected pipes.
Another advantage is elimination of mechanical vibrations caused by pumps.
- Accommodation of axial, lateral and angular displacements
- Noise and vibration damping
Shaped bead with hard rubber reinforcement provides safety against tripping of compensating pipes out of flanges at maximum positions when cyclically loaded.
