Ethylene Flexijoint PTFE expansion joints are flexible connectors and tremor barriers designed to compensate for misalignment, absorb expansion and contraction, and isolate vibration and shock in process piping, tanks and pumps. They also offer a low spring rate to protect stress sensitive FRP, glass or graphite equipment.
Flexijoints are available in sizes 1/2″ to 42″ and from 2 to 12 convolutions for maximum movements.
Flexijoint has almost universal chemical inertness, high and low temperature resistance, invulnerability to ozone and sunlight, outstanding flex life, and low acoustical impedance (sound dampening properties).
Ethylene Corporation’s Flexarmor Flexijoint expansion bellows combine the high pressure rating of a metallic expansion joint with the high temperature, near universal corrosion resistance of PTFE. They are designed for services where the unreinforced Flexijoint PTFE bellows is unsuitable.
Seamless, heavy walled, isostatically molded PTFE liners provide excellent resistance to permeation. This high integrity liner offers a superior alternative to the conventional PTFE spray coated or seamed liner. They are subjected to uncompromising quality control before and after lining of the bellows.
These bellows are available in most nickel alloys including Monel, Inconel and various types of stainless steels. Available designs include; universal joints, hinged-pinned and slotted, and gimbal types. Versatile manufacturing techniques accommodate customization of Flexarmor bellows flanging, overall length, movements and spring rates.
Pressure ratings for Flexarmor bellows are as high as 200 psig. The metallic outer bellows features uniform wall thickness and multiple ply construction for increased flexibility.
Lined Pipe Fittings
Our engineers were given the unrestrained challenge of creating the highest integrity fluoropolymer lined non-standard fittings, column sections and large diameter piping systems. Their only requirement was that our lined equipment outperform the competition in every way. More consistent quality, longer service in the most corrosive enviroments, better looking; simply the highest quality, most flexible lining process worldwide.
We’ve made significant investments in new processes, new equipment and state-of-the-art quality control equipment. This means you have Ethylene’s continuing commitment to meet your toughest and most corrosive requirements.
Protection for your downstream equipment
The Ethylene T-Line Strainer delivers maximum flow and chemical resistance while protecting your downstream equipment from the catastrophic damage of in-line debris. The strainer housing is lined with ETFE (standard) or PFA (optional) and the basket is solid PTFE. T-Line Strainers are rated at 150 psi, available in sizes 2″ to 8″ and can operate continuously up to 400°F.
PFA and Glass Wetted Surfaces
The FLO-VU 360L sight glass; 1″ through 12″ diameter, features a full 360° unobstructed view with the high temperature and near universal corrosion resistance of PFA.
- Type 316 stainless steel flanging
- 304 hardware and PFA/glass lined wetted surfaces
- Polycarbonate shield tubes
- PFA hollow ball float
- Chemraz® Fluoroelastomer Soft Seat
- Full vacuum to 150 psi
- Temperatures from -20° up to 300°F
Reactor Sampling / Monitoring & Control System
The pHampler is Ethylene’s patented reactor sampling and pH measurement / control system for agitated reactors. The pHampler enables the reactor manway to be kept closed during sampling and / or monitoring, eliminating fugitive emissions to dramatically improve operator and environmental safety. Yield is improved with the systems unprecedented sampling and in-line pH measurement and control flexibility.
