Elastomeric expansion joints absorb all movements in pipework

posiflex
All types of movement in pipework can be absorbed by Crane’s PosiFlex elastomeric expansion joints.
Crane’s PosiFlex full-bore elastomeric expansion joints can accommodate all types of movement in pipework — axial expansion and contraction, lateral, angular, torsional and vibrational — simultaneously and without embrittlement or fatigue. Large pipe movements are absorbed with minimal face-to-face dimensions. The capabilities of these joints mean that fewer are required. their low spring rates reduce the stress on the pipework system. Posiflex joints provide an effective means of reducing noise and vibration. Unlike metal expansion bellows, they resist corrosion and erosion. For pipework that is not anchored, Crane can provide control units with a rod assembly to limit end thrust in the joint and minimise possible damage from excessive movements of the pipeline to the joint and other installed equipment. The range of elastomers includes EPDM, Neoprene, chlorobutyl, nitrile, Viton, Hypalon and natural rubber.

The recent passage of the Building Safety Act is a welcome recognition of the fact that making safe buildings is a highly skilled operation says the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, endorsing the need for more effective regulation and a profound change in culture.

Underlying project-starts uptick indicates gradual recovery, Glenigan data suggests

  • 13% rise in detailed planning approvals against the preceding three months
  • 18% decline in main contract awards against the previous year
  • 9% increase in underlying starts during the three months to May

Glenigan has released the June 2022 edition of its Construction Review.
