STENFLEX® rubber-metal pipe connectors are installed specifically to intercept undesirable sound transmissions and dampen vibrations in pipelines. In particular, they are used in houses, hospitals and schools as these are places where noises caused by industrial equipment, pumps or burners can be very disruptive.
Rubber body with fully embedded steel flanges
Damping, movement compensation:
Rubber-metal pipe connectors dampen noise and vibration caused by appli-
ances, motors or pumps. Movement cannot be absorbed by these rubber-
metal pipe connectors.
Robust pipe fixed points and correct pipeline routing are necessary to absorb the axial forces.
Rubber-metal pipe connectors are made up of a cylindrical elastomer body with smooth interior surfaces and fully vulcanised steel flanges. The steel flanges are completely separated via metal so that outstanding sound and vibration damping is achieved through the intermediate elastomer body. In the seal area, the pipe connectors are equipped with an integrated sealing strip so that an additional seal does not need to be used.
