Flexible joints are vital components that are used in many different industries. Whenever there are two pipes that need to be joined together using components that are flexible and not as rigid as the other options, flexible joints have to be used. We have a range of flexible joints that you can buy and make use of in your business and industry. They’re crucial in any pipeline system, and can add an extra layer of protection and security to that system when they’re used in the right kind of way. Flexible joints come in all shapes and sizes, so you need to know a bit more about them.
Flexible joints are also sometimes known as unrestrained joints. They are known as unrestrained joints because they can be used in so many different ways, and are much less confined in terms of their potential use than the alternative type of joint. Unrestrained pipes tend to be used with uniaxial pipes. These need hoop pressure support, and that’s what’s provided by these joints, making them the ideal fit. The best flexible joints are also very easy to use and install, so they shouldn’t cause you any problems, even if you haven’t fitted one before.
It’s important to have components made from safe, secure and wear resistant materials when you’re running a business in the food industry. Our flexible joints are used by many such companies, and that’s because they are strong enough to hold up under pressure. And they’re also improved by food safety regulators too. It’s important to use joints that are up to the right standard and able to do what you need them to when it comes to managing foodstuffs safely. There are even different joints that can be matched to different food products, so survey all the options before making your final decision.
It’s not all about the food industry, though. There are plenty of other kinds of businesses and industries that we supply flexible joints to. For example, companies that work with harsh chemicals need strong and flexible joints that can withstand exposure to such chemicals. We provide silicone-free materials that can be used in the production of plastics. Our materials are also solvent resistant, which can be used at very high temperatures. On top of that, gas and oil can also be accommodated by our flexible joints, as can something as simple as water. A lot of bases are covered the flexible joints on offer.
