Teguflex Expansion Joints for hydroelectric plant in Pacific Ring of Fire
Trelleborg has more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing rubber expansion joints, known as Teguflex.
Experience and knowledge has lead us to be a market leader in the expansion bellow industry. We offer a complete range of bellows over a wide range of sizes and rubber grades to meet all types of applications.
Drinking water, abrasive materials , high temperatures, chemicals including salt, chlorine , hydrocarbon solvents , petroleum products , acids and other aggressive chemicals. Trelleborg has the right solution for each case.
That is the reason why we take part in great projects such as oil platforms, water treatment plants, industrial processes and energy production plants by designing and manufacturing tailor made bellows for most applications.
A recent example of is this is an installation in a hydroelectric plant in highly seismic area ; the American Pacific coast. Our technical team designed these joints that are suitable for pressures upto 11.5 bars. They were manufactured from EPDM Rubber at a nominal size of 2,900 mm. The aim is absorbing the oscillation tank settlement and movements produced by earthquakes.
