Rubber expansion joints / compensators are used as flexible connectors within pipe systems. Rubber expansion joints are single sphere type rubber expansion joints within swiveling metal flanges. The high quality bellows are produced in a mould. They are used to absorb tensions caused by temperature changes (thermal expansion), and equalize structural settling such as basement subsiding or ground movements.
