Description

Can your engineered pipe system stand the pressure? Protect pumps from temperature and pressure changes, and reduce noise and vibration, with Metrasphere. Our Metrasphere joint/flexible connector handles up to 225 PSI at 170 deg. F and can work at temperatures up to 230 deg. F!

The Metrasphere is the most widely applied expansion joint/flexible connector in the industry today. It provides the greatest pressure, temperature and movement, at a very reasonable cost. The Metrasphere’s resiliency also helps control pulsation shocks and noise transmission.

Constructed of neoprene* and nylon (other materials are available), the spherical shape allows pressure to exert itself uniformly in all directions, thus reducing the force exerted on pipe lines and equipment. Bias-ply tire cord provides strength, a high safety factor, and low force to move. Precision molding provides a dense, uniform carcass.

Solid plate steel flanges grip the sealing area and provide a fluid tight connection. All flanges are tapped or drilled to mate with 150# companion flanges. The tapped bolt holes and rotatable flanges make installation easy. The arch is self-cleaning, thus eliminating the need for filled arch when solids are present in the stream.
