Expansion joints for general service applications

Style 206 EZ-FLO® expansion joints contain a single wide flowing arch, eliminating the need for filled arches on slurry services. Suitable for high pressure applications, their self-flushing design eliminates media buildup and reduces fluid turbulence.

Style 206 EZ-FLO® can be designed to meet the requirements of ASTM F1123 and Navy/Coast Guard Specification 46CFR56.60-25(E).

FEATURES and BENEFITS

  • Self-flushing design eliminates media buildup and reduces fluid turbulence
  • High pressure resistance ensures longer life and reduces inventory requirements
  • Lightweight design installs easily and costs less to ship

Specifications

  • Size:

    > Min. Inner Diameter: 1 in / 25 mm

    > Max. Inner Diameter: 120 in / 3000 mm

     
  • Temperature:

    > Max temperature rating is based on tube, body and cover materials.  To determine, find the minimum temperature based on materials selected.

    Body Material  | Max. Temp.

    Nylon Tire Cord (Standard): +250°F (+120°C)

    Kevlar Tire Cord: +300°F (149°C)

     
  • Pressure and Vacuum Rating:



    Note: Pressure and vacuum ratings at neutral FF dimension. Extended face-to-face dimensions result in reduced pressure and vacuum ratings for Style 206 EZ-FLO® expansion joints.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Standard Design

  • Tube — Standard chlorobutyl liner extends to outer edge of the flange for excellent chemical resistance. The flowing arch design adds pressure resistance and reduces product buildup. Seamless tube creates a positive flange seal without gaskets.
  • Body — Rubber impregnated tire cord and polyester cross-wrapped in bias-ply construction.
  • Cover — Homogeneous layer of chlorobutyl elastomer extends to the outside edge of the flange. Coated with a weather-resistant protectant.

Optional Configurations

  • Custom drilling: ANSI, DIN, AWWA, BS, JIS, and special drilling patterns available on request
  • Extended Face-to-Face (pressure/vacuum ratings may be affected)
  • Accomodate misalignment: lateral, angular, and torsional offsets
