Rubber compensators are used for axial, side and angular feeds. They provide protection from sudden changes of pressure, reducing the internal stress of the installation, thermal stress and other physical movement. They also suppress noise and vibrations.
Depending upon the environment in which they are used (the medium, temperature, pressure), and the dimensions and settings of the pipeline, it is essential to select the correct materials for the construction of rubber compensators. The popular materials used for sealing are:
Rubber compensators are made mainly from elastometric materials and depending on the needs – reinforced with synthetic and stabilizing steel rings. The compensators have permanent and circular collars made of solid materials of the highest quality (e.g. carbon steel aluminum, stainless and acid-resistant steel).
Rubber compensators are used in water, heating, oil, chemical, gas, sanitary and air-conditioning installations. They are effective in the energy production sectors (water, heat and atomic power stations), construction industry, metallurgy, food,confectionery and stationery industries
