Our highly experienced team of engineers and technical sales professionals work directly with the manufacturer to provide unique, value-added solutions, ranging from the simple to the simply amazing.
Power – Fossil
Since 1950, General Rubber has been working with fossil fuel power plants to increase piping and equipment reliability with innovative solutions. Our expansion joints are performance based and cost effective, with applications ranging from circulating cooling water to high temperature rectangular expansion joints.
Power – Nuclear
General Rubber is original equipment in half of the nuclear generating sites in the U.S., including the newest AP1000 units and several international plants. Whether you need a plant reliability and efficiency program (PREP) for an existing plant, or are interested in best piping practice and optimization (BPPO) for a new construction project, General Rubber delivers the experience and solutions you require.
General Rubber’s unique combination of performance-based products, technical knowledge, and field service deliver expansion joint solutions to even the most demanding chemical processing applications around the world.
Since 1950, General Rubber’s products have been providing the reliability and durability demanded by the wastewater industry. Let us show you how we are using best piping practices and optimization (BPPO) for new construction projects, as well as how we can develop a plant reliability and efficiency program (PREP) for your existing plant.
Mining and Mineral Processing
Mining and processing ores and minerals require heavy-duty products to withstand the abrasive and corrosive media, as well as the aggressive environment associated with this demanding industry. General Rubber offers a number of unique product solutions, including our performance expansion joints and pinch valves.
Pulp and Paper Processing
General Rubber has a tremendous amount of experience with products specifically designed to operate reliably throughout the mill. We utilize advanced elastomers with a highly engineered construction to provide expansion joints that stand up to even the most demanding applications.
General Rubber offers the performance expansion joints needed for the harsh and demanding environment associated with steel production.
General Rubber’s expansion joints are built for even the most demanding applications faced by the marine industry. Our experience includes a long history of working with the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy to supply military-approved products.
Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)
Our expansion joints and other performance rubber products will reduce noise and vibration generated from mechanical equipment, including pumps, chillers, compressors, fans, heat exchangers, and cooling towers. They are also used to absorb thermal movements and vibration in risers and other pipelines.
