Expansion Joints

For information about selecting pipe size, see pages 2-3.

Please Read Before Ordering: When ordering an expansion joint, you must first know the size of your pipe. Pipe
Pipe size is the accepted industry designation, not the actual measured size. To determine pipe size, first measure the
OD outside diameter (OD) of your pipe, as shown at left. Then, refer to the chart and select the corresponding pipe size.
For example, if the unthreaded pipe OD measures 1.90⬙, the corresponding pipe size is 11⁄2⬙.

About Expansion Joints


Expansion joints reduce stress, vibration, and noise in piping and duct systems by
providing a point of flexibility to absorb any movement.
Expansion joints are rated for three types of movement: compression, when the
distance between the connections is shortened; extension, when the distance be-
tween the connections is lengthened; and deflection, when the connections are
moved off center. While they can handle three types of movement, they can only
Compression Extension Deflection move one way at a time. For example, if a joint is compressed, it must go back to its
original position before it can be deflected.

Expansion Joints with Easy-Align Galvanized Steel Flanged Ends


Single Neoprene EPDM
A • Temperature Range: −50° to +230° F • Temperature Range: −60° to +250° F
Arch
B
• Maximum Pressure: 225 psi @ 72° F • Maximum Pressure: 225 psi @ 72° F
• Vacuum: 26⬙ Hg @ 72° F • Vacuum: 26⬙ Hg @ 72° F
The flanged ends on these expansion joints rotate for easy bolt hole alignment during installation. The
C flanges are made of galvanized steel and have a flat face; they’ll mate with other flat-face Class 150 flanges
without the need for a gasket. All have a flexible body that’s nylon-reinforced for structural strength.
Double Double-arch joints absorb more vibration, plus can withstand more movement than the single-arch joints.
Arch Neoprene offers excellent abrasion resistance. Ideal for use with antifreeze and oils. Available with
O'all your choice of straight UNC threaded bolt holes or unthreaded bolt holes.
Lg. EPDM has good abrasion resistance with a higher temperature rating than neoprene. Use with water
and alcohols. Bolt holes are unthreaded.

You’ll get a better seal than with other expansion joints because these come with molded flanged ends that act as gaskets.
C Because the flanges are molded into the body, they do not rotate; however, all have galvanized steel back up flanges that do.
A
These joints will mate with the Class 150 flanges in your piping system.The bolt holes are unthreaded. The joint bodies have a
single arch and are nylon reinforced, except the joints that are neoprene with Buna-N liner which are reinforced with polyester cord.
B
Chlorobutyl withstands higher temperatures than neoprene or Buna-N. It has good abrasion resistance.
Neoprene offers excellent abrasion resistance and is ideal for use with antifreeze and oils.
O'all Neoprene with Buna-N (nitrile) liner handles more applications than neoprene alone. It has good abrasion resistance
Lg. and is for use with water, antifreeze, oils, grease, and hydraulic fluids.
