New Product Development – Style 280

Proco Products, Inc. – a leader in rubber expansion joint technology, manufacture, supply and service – is currently developing an expansion joint that will attach to unfriendly flange arrangements such as butterfly valves, wafer check valves or HDPE stub end flanges. The new Style 280 single, double or triple arch expansion joint will be built to handle these tough sealing connections and ensure proper seal. This design will replace the full faced flange arrangement such as our Series 230 which can have sealing issues when installing to these surfaces where there is not enough sealing surface. 

Typical applications for this Style 280 expansion joint include:

  • Mining
  • Industrial
  • Water Delivery and Treatment
  • Power Generation
  • Pulp and Paper Mills
  • Fire ProtectionStyle 280 Side View

There are many features and benefits of the Style 280 that will benefit your piping system. Some of these benefits are:

  • Precision laser-cut carbon steel flanges
  • Powder-coated flanges for maximum durability
  • Floating flange design for ease of installation
  • Polyester tire cord of Kevlar® wrapped around a solid steel ring in the base of the rubber flange
    • Prevents the tire-cord from pulling out of the flange
    • Provides superior sealing
  • Available in non-standard face-to-face dimensions
  • TEFLON® lining available
  • Compensates for offset bolt holes and some piping misalignment 

More information for the Style 280 expansion joint along with a product brochure will be made available soon. In the meantime, if you require more information about this new product, please contact a Proco representative
