Application Demos

General Rubber is a leader in the industry for its advanced and custom expansion joint designs. Using our cutting edge software and simulation programs, our engineers have developed animations of our expansion joints displaying their various capabilities. These animations are helpful in illustrating our products’ roles in best piping practice and optimization. Select a video below by style or application. We can provide custom animations for arrangements and sizes not shown. Please contact us with your job specific details.

Elbow Pressure Balanced Restrained

Restrained elbow pressure balanced rubber expansion joints are primarily designed to directly absorb axial thermal movements and their resulting stresses while restraining/balancing any pressure thrust and other forces.

Gimbal Restrained

Restrained gimbal rubber expansion joints are designed to bend in two planes, absorbing angular displacement while restraining any pressure thrust forces.

Hinged Restrained

Hinged restrained rubber expansion joints are designed to bend in a single plane, absorbing angular displacement while restraining any pressure thrust forces.

In-Line Pressure Balanced Restrained

In-line pressure balanced rubber expansion joints are primarily designed to directly absorb axial thermal movements and their resulting stresses while restraining/balancing any pressure thrust forces.

Universal Restrained

Universal restrained rubber expansion joints are primarily designed to absorb lateral movements while restraining any pressure thrust forces.

Single Arch Cross Section

Unrestrained rubber expansion joints are primarily designed to relieve thermal stresses in rigid piping systems by absorbing axial movement and the resulting anchor loads.

Single Arch Unrestrained

Unrestrained rubber expansion joints are primarily designed to relieve thermal stresses in rigid piping systems by absorbing axial movement and the resulting anchor loads.

All Directional

All piping systems require some degree of flexibility. Rubber expansion joints provide the ultimate in flexibility with their resilient construction and all-directional movement capability.
