VIBRAFLEX 150 Reinforced Rubber Pipe (Fluid Service)
The Mercer Vibraflex reinforced rubber pipe is hand built by our skilled craftsmen. To minimize pipe elongation, the carcass is constructed of multiple plies of high tensile polyester tire cord or Kevlar for high temperatures.
Helical spring steel wire is imbedded in the carcass to prevent kinking or crushing as well as for radial pressure reinforcement. A variety of cover and tube elastomers are available, offering superior chemical, aging and temperature resistance from -30°F (-34°C) to +250°F (121°C) operating temperatures.
The carcass is made of multiple plies of tough, rubber impregnated fabric and tire cord. They are available in a large variety of tube and cover material for different applications. Such materials as EPDM, Hypalon, Neoprene, Nitrile and more. Retaining Rings are rigid, baked enamel ductile iron. Other materials or finishes on special order. Pipe sizes from 2” up to 12” are available. The construction includes split retaining rings. Components are pressure cured, resulting in structurally sound, long service life. Optional exterior coat of Hypalon paint provides additional protection against oxidation, acid splashing or acid fumes. These pipes reduce water line noises and vibrations caused by the pipe wall and the can reduce “water hammer”. They also prevent electrolytic action by eliminating metal-to-metal contact.
VIBRAFLEX Series 250
The Vibraflex 250 series has all the features of the 150 series, with working pressures up to 250 psi and full vacuum.
VIBRAFLEX Series 150HT & 250HT
The Vibraflex 150HT & 250HT are a High Temperature series. The tube and cover are either EPDM or Viton® and the reinforcement is Kevlar for full pressure service up to 350°F (176°C).
