Web Exclusive-George Fischer Sloane Expansion Joint
April 6, 2004
George Fischer Sloane has introduced a new Expansion Joint in PVC and CPVC for outdoor piping.
Designed solve expansion and contraction in outdoor piping systems exposed to harsh environmental elements, George Fischer Sloane has introduced a new Expansion Joint in PVC and CPVC. Typical applications include water intake systems, waste lines, manifold systems, or any outdoor application where the air or fluid can experience a 30-degree shift in temperature. Available in sizes from 1/2- to 6-inch, the new Expansion Joint incorporates inner and outer telescoping tubes that allow for high-strength mounting between two fixed points. The inner tube expands and contracts, similar to a piston, against the anchored outer tube, providing the flexibility needed to maintain proper pipe operation. The triple o-ring design further enhances strength and rigidity. Operating ambient temperature range is from 60
