Garlock rubber expansion joint accessories include retaining rings, control units/tie rods, and metal flow liners.
Control units are recommended on most applications to prevent damage due to excessive pipe movements. They are not designed to replace pipeline anchoring. Control units consist of two or more tie rods connected between pipe flanges.
Designed to extend service life by providing the tube protection from abrasive materials or solids, especially in high-velocity applications.
The flow liners are flanged at one end, installed at the head of the flow, and tapered to a 5° angle to allow lateral deflection.
Required for use in all applications, metal retaining rings provide a metal surface to distribute bolting pressure equally, preventing flange damage during bolt tightening.
