Applications For industrial hot water pipelines where oil-based additives are used against corrosion, for lubricating oil, domestic oil, oil mixed pressurised air etc. With an allowed working temperature at 110C, which is approx. 20 higher than many competing materials, you get improved properties when used in cooling systems. For engine manufacturers, for instance, this means that the effectiveness of the coolant system can be increased while maintaining the service life of the expansion joint. Design The Teguflex HO expansion joint is composed of a special internal Nitrile rubber compound, suitable for high temperatures without harden. The unique fabric reinforcement is resistant to hydrolysis, which will endure high temperatures in combination with moisture, water or oil mixed water. This ensures a long service life with remained properties. Building length 130/150/200 mm. Turnable flanges.

Applications Teguflex TU are recommended in small diameter pipes, pumps and equipments, because most connections in housing and industries services are often required in screwed connection rather than flanges for small diameter installations. Excellent for applications where large lateral or angular movements arise. Typical applications could be pumps (suction and discharge line), air-condition systems and irrigations. Design The style TU screwed union expansion joints are designed to absorb pipe movements, stress, isolate vibrations, reducing system noise and protect against start up and surge forces. The Teguflex TU are designed in twin sphere because its proven absorption and flexibility in all directional movements during operation. By combination of spherical structure with super stability against internal pressure and strong special reinforcement the Teguflex TU displays an outstanding pressure resistant of 30 bar bursting pressure or above at normal temperature. The metal parts, made of malleable cast iron and zinc plated, are furnished with BSP threads as standard. Also available in stainless steel and/or NPT threaded unions. Materials

INSTALLATION OF TRELLEBORG TF EXPANSION JOINTS with turnable flanges. Key factors for installation Trelleborg rubber expansion joints are supplied ready for installation. Following advises are however to be taken into consideration in order to obtain a good performance and prolonged service life of the expansion joint. Fixed points An expansion joint acts as a piston by the forces arising from the internal pressure. To prevent the pipes from damage they are to be properly anchored in order to take care of these reaction forces (Fr). The reaction force of an expansion joint is calculated by the following formula: Fr = A x P x 0,01 Fr = reaction force in kN. A = effective cross sectional area in cm2. P = actual pressure in bar or kp/cm2. Installation The turnable metal flanges make installation easier and eliminate twist. The low inherent rigidity of Trelleborg TF expansion joints make for easier accommodation of installation dimensions. The expansion joints shall be easily accessible and open to regular supervision. It is recommended to let the expansion joints work in compression rather than stretching. Torsion is not permitted. Check the permissible movements, temperature, pressure and proper rubber quality before installation!

Installation of Trelleborg TF Expansion Joints


Mounting In order to provide the movement capabilities indicated in the technical specifications, the assembly bolts should be mounted with bolts heads towards expansion joint body. (1) If this is for any reason impossible, ensure that the threaded bolts project as little as possible (no more than 2 or 3 mm) to avoid damage to the body. Tightening must be progressive and crosswise in diagonal sequence with bolting pressure evenly distributed. The design of the expansion joints secures a sealing to the counter flange. That is why no sealing gasket is required. Note: If the bolts and nuts are tightened too strongly, the sealing face might be crushed causing improper function! Counter flanges It is very important for the safe operating and life expectancy of the expansion joint to make a proper installation of the counter flanges(Fig. 2 to 5). The sealing face of the counter flange must be machined smooth and cover most of the rubber sealing face (or at least 60%) to ensure a good sealing (Fig.2). Precaution Do not paint or lubricate rubber parts of expansion joints! When welding work is to take place the bellow has to be protected from welding heat and sparks!

INSTALLATION OF TRELLEBORG FF EXPANSION JOINTS with full-faced flanges. Key factors for installation Trelleborg rubber expansion joints are supplied ready for installation. Following advices are however to be taken into consideration in order to obtain a good performance and prolonged service life of the expansion joint. Fixed points An expansion joint acts as a piston by the forces arising from the internal pressure. To prevent the pipes from damage they have to be properly anchored in order to take care of these reaction forces (Fr). The reaction force of an expansion joint is calculated by the following formula: Fr = A x P x 0,01 Fr = reaction force in kN. A = effective cross sectional area in cm2. P = actual pressure in bar or kp/cm2. Checking For optimum lifetime of expansion joints, make sure that the installed length and operating movements are compatible with their capabilities. (See our Technical Specifications for installation length and technical data). Check that expansion joints working pressures and grades are compatible with the operating conditions. Precautions prior to installation To avoid any damage, the expansion joints should be handled with great care, using a counter-flange lifting-ring. It is essential that the expansion joints are mounted on flat faced piping flanges that have been degreased and are clean and dry. No gasket must be mounted between the rubber expansion joint flanges and the mating pipe flanges. Expansion Joint Positioning Position the expansion joint, making sure the holes of the expansion joint counter-flanges and flanges are in line with the holes of mating pipe flanges.

Installation Trelleborg FF Expansion Joints


When the expansion joint is in place, check the length of the bolts so that the arch will not be damaged during operation. Use a conical drive-in pin if necessary. Set bolts in place and tighten the nuts slightly on both flanges. Cut and remove webbing, taking care not to damage the cover. Expansion Joint Installation: Tighten bolts on each flange moderately as in the sequence shown below:
1 9 13 5 11 15

16 12 6 2 10

Bolts should be tightened in diametral crosswise order. Repeat tightening sequence several times. 1st pass: Tighten to approximatively 10% of the maximum permissible torque for the bolting. Based Tight FF.eps on the class 6.8. 2nd pass: Tighten to approximatively 30% of the maximum value. 3rd pass: After at least 2 hours, re-tighten to 30% of the maximum value to make up for the reduction in tightening after relaxation of tightening force in the 2nd pass. All bolts must be tightened to the same torque value. If necessary, re-tighten until there are no signs of leakage, see page or deformation of the top of the rubber flanges upon going on stream or during hydraulic pressure test. Precaution Do not paint or lubricate rubber parts of the expansion joints.

INSTALLATION OF THE TIE-ROD ASSEMBLY Arrangement of the various parts of a tie-rod unit is shown in the contractual drawings. The parts must be mounted in the right order. Spherical bearings, washers or spherical bearing nuts (if any) must be lubrificated taking care not to foul the expansion joint. Bolt tightening The bolts should be tightening when installing the expansion joint. Gradually tighten all bolts, including those of the tie-rod plates, in a diametrical crosswise order, in several passes. Tie-rod adjustment Tie-rods should be adjusted to conform to the installed length of the expansion joint. The only play allowed (if any) after tightening is shown in contractual tie-rod drawings. Tightening of locknuts on threaded rods Once the tie-rods have been adjusted and slightly tightened by fitting the nuts on either side of the fixing plates, tighten the counternuts. Lock the nut/counternut assembly by hand to state-of-art procedure. Checking After tightening, make sure the tie-rod play values (if any) are all identical so that reaction will be evenly distributed between each tie-rod. MAINTENANCE AFTER INSTALLATION Prior to starting up Remove any dust or foreign bodies which may have found their way inside the expansion joints. Make sure there is no possibility of accidental damage or sabotage. It is advisable to cover the expansion joints with light metal sheeting. Check that no lubricant can fall onto the expansion joints. When starting up Check for leakage. If necessary, check efficiency of tie-rods. When running The expansion joints must be easily accessible and never covered with insulating material or paint. They may only be protected with our fire-resistant covers, where these are specified. As soon as the expansion joints are working, make sure they are not subjected to movements exceeding their allowable limits. Maintenance It is advisable to inspect the expansion joints every 12 months. Any changes in outer cover will be indicative of serious deterioration. Make sure the bolts are properly tightened. Check the extent of expansion joint movements, which must remain within their allowable limits. It is advisable to make an in-depth inspection of expansion joints at least every 5 years. Check each expansion joint carefully. For this, it must either be easily accessible for internal inspection or must be dismounted.

STORAGE IN GENERAL In the majority of products based on vulcanized rubber, storage for a certain period inevitabily induces changes in the physical properties of the stored products. Consequently, these products may not have their ultimate performance characteristics if stored for a length of time before installation (for example, an excess hardness, softening of the rubber or cracks and other surface deteriorations). These changes may result from one particular factor or from a combination of factors, namely the effect of oxygen, ozone, light, heat and humidity. The adverse effects of these factors may be minimised by a careful choice of the storage conditions. PROTECTIVE MEASURES Storage area requirements Cool:The storage temperature should be below 25C and products should be stored away from direct sources of heat such as boilers, radiators and direct sunlight. If the storage temperature is below 15C, care should be exercised during the handling of stored products as they may have stiffened and become susceptible to distortion if not handled carefully. The temperature of products taken from such lowtemperature storage should be raised to approximately 30C throughout their mass, before the products are put into service. It must not drop below 0 C nor exceed +30 C. However, should the temperature fall below 0 C, simply take the precaution of rewarning the joint slowly before handling them in order to avoid any risk of damage. Relatively dry: Maintain a relative humidity between 45 and 70% since excessive dryness is harmful for the expansion joint. Temporary deviations are however allowed. The relative humidity should be such that, given the variations of temperature in storage, condensation does not occur. In any event, the relative humidity of the atmosphere in storage should be less than 70% or, if polyurethanes are being stored, less than 65%. Note: - Air with 75% RH at 15C will have a dew point of approximately 11C. - Air with 75% RH at 20C will have a dew point of approximately 16C. - Air with 65% RH at 15C will have a dew point of approximately 9C. - Air with 65% RH at 20C will have a dew point of approximately 13C. - Air with 50% RH at 10C will have a dew point of approximately 0C.

Storage Trelleborg Expansion Joints


For the counter-flanges (or metal parts) excessive dryness or humidity are harmful and the pieces must be protected. Light ventilation: Ventilation should be as light as possible, avoiding any draughts. Heating Stoves, radiators and steam pipes should be insulated. If this is not possible, the expansion joint must be stored at a good distance from these heat sources. Lightning During storage, the expansion joints must not be exposed to sunlight or any other light source rich in ultraviolet radiation. Cleanliness It is advisable to clean the room thoroughly previous to storing expansion joints. Oil, greases and chemicals must not be stored in the same room or should at least be kept separate from the expansion joints. Ozone As ozone is particularly deleterious to rubber, storage rooms should not contain any equipment that is capable of generating ozone, such as mercury vapour lamps or high-voltage electrical equipment giving rise to electric sparks or silent electrical discharges. Combustion gases and organic vapours should be excluded from storage rooms, as they may give rise to ozone via photochemical processes. Note 1: When equipment such as a fork-lift truck is used to handle large rubber products, care needs to be taken to ensure this equipment is not a source of pollution that may affect the rubber. Note 2: Combustion gases should be considered separately. While they are responsible for generating ground-level ozone, they may also contain unburned fuel which, by condensing on rubber products, can cause additional deterioration. Please turn!

Storage Trelleborg Expansion Joints


Deformation Rubber should be stored free from superimposed tensions and compressive stresses or other causes of deformation. Where products are packaged in a strain-free condition, they should be stored in their original packaging. In case of doubt, the manufacturers advice should be asked for. Note: It is advisable that rings of large internal diameter are formed into three equal superimposed loops so as to avoid creasing or twisting. It is not possible to achieve this condition by forming just two loops. OUR EXPANSION JOINTS Storage precautions It is advisable to store them in such a way that they have no contact with the ground. Our expansion joints must be laid flat, on a plain surface to prevent any deformation. Avoid contact with any sharp object. Under the above optimum conditions, the expansion joints may be stored for a maximum period of two years from end of manufacture. Expansion joint supplied in a packing case may be stored flat in their original packing in a warehouse for the same period of two years. Where longer storage is scheduled, it is essential to protect the rubber portions of the expansion joints by giving them two coasts in alternate directions of special CSM (hypalon based) paint, at works. This is for spares which have been given this treatment may be stored for a maximum total period of 5 years under the above conditions. (The first two years, they may be stored in their packing case as for non-treated expansion joints). Note: Metal parts such as tie rods and bolts are to be stored in their original packing. As applicable, give them treatment for normal conditions of storage of metal parts, suitable for the storage area. For interim storage during construction work when no proper user facilities are yet available This storage, which will last no more than a few months, must comply with the following requirement: Lay the expansion joint flat on a plain surface covered with wood and a fabric or plastic protective covering. Store in a dry place (protected against rain, surface water and splashing). Cover the expansion joints to protect them from bad weather and sunlight, (light coloured fabric or plastic if storage area is exposed to sunlight). Provide natural ventilation (but avoid draughts and air movements). Take necessary precautions to avoid contact, even accidentalty, with chemicals, oil, grease, etc. Store away from sources of heat or ozone. Shield against malicious mischief. There are no reservations as to ambient storage temperatures, providing they exceed 0C. Wherever possible, store in the shade of a building. Position, so that the identification marking is visible without any items having to be moved.
