PTFE Expansion Joints

Our PTFE expansion joints have advantageous properties for the chemicals processing industry to protect against corrosive substances. As a non-reactive synthetic material, Polytetrafluoroethylene creates high-performing expansion joints that perform within extreme industrial environments.

Our PTFE expansion joints are crafted from Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a synthetic material renowned for its non-reactive properties, making it a staple in pipelines across the chemical manufacturing industry. Acting as a shield against corrosive substances, Proco’s molded PTFE expansion joints are meticulously engineered to safeguard pipes encountering potent industrial and reactive materials.

These PTFE expansion joints find application in a spectrum of industries, including chemical-petrochemical, industrial process piping systems, power generation plants, pulp/paper plants, water and wastewater sewage, and pollution control systems.

Replacing traditional metallic joints, lap joints, or PTFE and FEP-lined rubber expansion joints, our convoluted PTFE expansion joints offer a superior alternative. They excel in absorbing pipe-wall and fluid-borne noise, as the convoluted design dissipates energy from pipe-wall sound and cushions water hammer and pumping impulses.

Designed to reduce system stress and strain, these expansion joints are typically installed horizontally but are also suitable for vertical and perpendicular orientations, accommodating axial, lateral, and angular movements, as well as vibrations.

As a leading manufacturer of PTFE expansion joints, PROCO’s products feature automatic self-correction capabilities, rectifying misalignments stemming from structural movements such as settling, pipe expansion, or ground shifts.
