Expansion joints and Bellows (Wearflex®)
Custom-made expansions joints and bellows
Wearflex® Expansion Joints are flexible connections in air, flue gas pipes and duct systems found in all kinds of industries. The main job of Expansion Joints is to compensate thermal expansion, misalignments and absorb vibrations. The Insulcon Group is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of fabric, rubber and metal Expansion Joints.
Our Wearflex® Expansion Joints are vital components in most of today's energy and industrial plants such as power plants, gas turbines systems, flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, petrochemical and chemical plants, incinerators, cement works and steel works.
Today we produce glued, sewed and heat-sealed fabric expansion joints, which can be divided in:
- Wearflex® Q-Flex Expansion Joints (for clean flue gasses)
- Wearflex® Q-Chem Expansion Joints (for other flue gasses)
- Wearflex® Q-Fire Expansion Bellows (fire proof)
Wearflex® hand-made Expansion Joints are individually manufactured in our production facility in Steenbergen (The Netherlands), using only the highest quality materials and highly skilled people.
Insulcon also delivers compensators that are suitable for installation in ATEX environment:
We specially designed electrically conductive fabrics, that can be applied in our Wearflex® ATEX expansion joints. These fabrics are tested and certified by an independent organisation. The temperature range of our Wearflex® ATEX expansion joints is 0 - 400°C, with a pressure range of -50m Bar to +150m Bar. We also deliver Wearflex® ATEX rubber expansion joints, which are mainly used in transport pipelines to transport gases, oils, food, cooling and waste water.
