Stainless steel flexible hose reduces pipe wall propagated vibration and noise transmission, prevents pipe fatigue, simplifies alignment problems and reduces equipment flange stress. All hoses are close pitch helical or annular design for maximum flexibility. The unique design of face steel plate flange on one end and a floating flange on the other ensures twisting full strength pipe to line up bolt holes to prevent system failure. PC, GU and EM models with different pipe size are available for pump connection, general usage and extreme motion respectively. Different fitting options are available including grooved nipples, raised face flanges, threaded nipples, floating flanges and female copper sweat to suit various applications.
The Seismic “V” Assemblies is a unique product that caters for seismic motion. No thrust has to be considered with “V” assemblies. It allows 4” movement in all directions. The special “V” construction is based on two isosceles 30, 60, 90 triangles complimenting one another to form a 60 degree “V” at the bottom. The floating flange on both ends offer flexibility if necessary together with other fitting options for your choice.
The Expansion Compensating Connectors are a bellows that protected by and guided within a pipe housing. They are furnished with a fixed flange on the one end and a floating flange on the other. The alternates are threaded nipples, weld or grooved ends or copper female sweat ends as needed. There are three movement choices available including 2” compression and ½” extension, 4” compression and ¾” extension and 8” compression and 1-½” extension.
