Garlock releases general service elastomeric expansion joints

Garlock Sealing Technologies introduced its 104GS general service elastomeric expansion joints. The joints are reportedly ideal for new construction projects, water and wastewater treatment plants, power generation facilities, and various other industrial applications.

The 104GS features a neoprene tube and cover that are oil- and abrasion-resistant while also protecting the carcass from many environmental elements. The Neoprene construction makes the 104GS compatible with a wide range of media, making it an ideal general service expansion joint.

The expansion joints are reinforced by a combination of nylon fabric and carbon steel body wire, allowing the product to withstand significant operating pressures. Additional arch support rings supply stability under vacuum and help to extend the life of the product. The expansion joints are rigorously tested to ensure a consistent, high-quality product.

The wider, single-arch design of the 104GS joints allows for greater movements and helps to reduce the effects of moderate sediment transfer.

To simplify the ordering process, the 104GS is available in 2- through 24-in. ID sizes and sold complete with galvanized carbon steel retaining rings.
