Resilient Fabric and Non-Metallic Expansion Joints

ProcessBarron stocks fabrics and insulation for the manufacture of a wide variety of fabric expansion joints with tolerance ranges from low temperatures to 1800˚F. All fabric expansion joint materials comply with Fluid Sealing Association (FSA) specifications. Expansion joints made from elastomeric or composite material are available.

Elastomeric Expansion Joint Options

ProcessBarron’s elastomeric expansion joints provide high resistance to moisture and chemical corrosion, resistance to vibrations and pulsations, and are ideal for fan discharge and turbine inlet applications.

Series Cover Construction Max. Cont. Temp. Design Pressure Vacuum
N250 Fabric Reinforced Neoprene 250°F 2 psig 50 In. H2O
E300E Fabric Reinforced EPDM 300°F 2 psig 50 In. H2O
E400V Fabric Reinforced Fluoroelastomer 400°F 2 psig 50 In. H2O
T1407 Fluoropolymer with PTFE Chemical Barrier 600°F 3 psig 83 In. H2O
  • N250: Permits continuous use to 250°F. N250 is flame resistant and is compounded to give good resistance to sun, weather, and ozone. N250 operates without deterioration in presence of the flue gases, oils, greases, and other petroleum products.
  • E300E: Permits continuous use up to 300°F. EPDM has good weatherability characteristics and is excellent against hot air and most flue gases. It cannot be operated in an oil atmosphere without accelerated deterioration.
  • E400V: Permits continuous use up to 400°F with short duration excursions to 700°F. Fluoroelastomers are excellent against hot air and have good resistance against oils and minerals acids. They exhibit good weatherability and have proven successful against chemicals such as SO2 and SO3 found in flue gases.
  • T1407: Permits continuous use up to 600°F. T1407 is excellent for harsh chemical service in very aggressive wet and dry environments. T1407 operates without deterioration in the presence of flue gases, oils, grease, aromatic aliphatic, halogenated hydrocarbons, and many acids.

Composite Expansion Joint Options:

ProcessBarron’s composite expansion joints provide the highest resistance to moisture and chemical corrosion, permit continuous use at extreme temperatures, provide resistance to vibrations and pulsations, and are ideal for the most chemically corrosive and extreme temperature applications.

Fabric expansion joints, non-metallic expansion joints, and frames are fabricated and assembled in-house at our Alabama facilities. Convenient emergency and standard deliveries are available.
