Rubber Flexible Connectors

Rubber Connectors

Standard unreinforced rubber sleeves and flanged rubber connectors can be used for various low-pressure applications such as ducting misalignment, anti-vibration couplings, sieve bellows and silo outlets.  Non standard sizes and dissimilar ends can all be catered for. When deciding on the most appropriate materials and build specification, a number of considerations must be taken into account including working temperature, pressure and conveyed media. Fixing methods can include worm-drive clips or flanges.


Mandrel-Built Seamless Rubber Sleeves.

Mandrel-built seamless rubber sleeves consist of a seamless rubber tube produced with a smooth internal bore and cloth mark outer finish. These sleeves have no bonded seam and can be used as cement loading chutes, dicharge chutes and silo rubber sleeves.

A full range of mandrel-built sleeves ranging from 1 ½” to 20” diameter with a 1/8” wall are available from stock in both Tan Para rubber and FDA white food quality natural rubber.

Other rubber compounds and wall thicknesses are available upon request. These include FDA white food-grade Neoprene rubber, FDA white food-grade Nitrile rubber, FDA food-grade silicone rubber and blue FDA rubbers. Reinforcement can also be included into the build specification to increase pressure ratings suitable for applications such as blow lines and silo sleeves.


Hand-Fabricated Rubber Sleeves.

Hand-fabricated rubber sleeves are produced from rubber sheet materials from 0.5mm to 20mm wall thickness with either a butt or overlap join. Each rubber sleeve can be produced to any given dimensions including conical and offset angles. Our flexible rubber sleeves can now also be manufactured in blue FDA metal detectable rubber and blue FDA Nitrile rubber


Hand-Fabricated Flanged Connectors.

We can also offer rubber flanged connectors both circular and rectangular, straight or conical. These are produced from bonded sheet so have no tooling charges. We can manufacture rubber flanged flexibles to customer specifications regarding sizes, lengths and flange drilling.
