Redflex® Rubber Pipe is an economical, abrasion-resistant replacement for steel and cast iron pipe, either in straight lengths or where a specified radius is required. Rubber Pipe may be used in conveying ore, corrosive chemicals, sand, and other abrasive slurries. Rubber Pipe is available for working pressures from 25 to 150 psi.
Redflex® Rubber Pipe is available with ANSI Class 125 flange drilling, and can be used on 30" Hg vacuum. Standard construction of Redflex® Rubber Pipe is a rubber tube with Nylon fabric reinforcement for maximum continuing temperatures to 180°F. The pipe is covered with synthetic rubber to protect against abrasion and aging. It is absolutely necessary that rigid metal pipe on both ends of the pipe be properly anchored to eliminate the danger of excessive elongation. If the pipeline is not anchored, control units should be used. Rubber pipe can elongate 7% or better under pressure.
Redflex® Vibration Pipe offers a workable solution to the problem of controlling vibration and reducing noise from pumps, compressors, and other equipment. It minimizes water hammer and eliminates electrolysis. It is also available with arches for special applications.
The Slip-On SL-100 provides a very simple and effective way to reduce vibration and movement in low-pressure applications. The slip-on configuration of the SL-100 allows a section of pipe to be removed, and the rubber connector to be slipped into place. Stainless steel bands are provided for a secure connection. The SL-100 acts as a rubber isolator to prevent vibration from being transmitted from moving parts, such as pumps or compressors. By isolating vibration, it also eliminates much of the noise that is transmitted as well. The flexibility of the joint can help compensate for movement between two pipes
