Neoprene Expansion Joint
The S-Flex(TM) Dog Bone Expansion Joint is a unique “S”-shaped neoprene turbine-to-condenser expansion joint that was developed to solve an industry-wide problem of hardware misalignment and difficult expansion joint installations. The S-Flex(TM) allows the joint to be expanded to 10-3/4-inches, or compressed to 9-1/2-inches during installation, eliminating installation problems caused by misaligned clamping bars. It also eliminates most buckling or bulging while transitioning corners, and the 3-ply skim-coated webs provide additional leak barriers to air inleakage.
