The new Garlock 204 EPS (extreme pressure service) abrupt arched expansion joint is now available for applications where necessary rated pressures exceed those of the Garlock Style 204 and 204 HP designs. Fully customizable and available in concentric or eccentric designs, the expansion joint features a seamless tube to ensure a reliable seal from flange to flange. High pressure and vacuum resistance increase safety and ensure the joint’s suitability for a range of applications. The tube can be manufactured in a wide selection of elastomers that are resistant to temperatures, weathering, oxidation, and chemicals, and the abrupt arch configuration provides maximum movement, and pressure and vacuum resistance. The joint’s body is made of a composite fabric construction with welded, treated metal body rings for dimensional stability. (
