Temperature range -20 °C up to +90 °C (depending on medium), temporarily up to +100 °C. 


ERV-GR | Green Band


ERV-GR “Green Band” expansion joints are typically used in the chemical and food industry. These compensators are electrically non-conductive and suitable for various chemicals, acids, alkalis and aggressive chemical waste water. It is suitable for oil-contaminated compressed air up to +90 °C.

Temperature range -20 °C up to +100 °C (depending on medium), temporarily up to +110 °C.

ERV-W | White Band


ERV-W “White Band” expansion joints are typically used in food processing industries. They are electrically non-conductive and suitable for food stuffs, including food that contains oils and fats.
 
The liner meets Food Safety Recommendation XXI of the German  "Bundesinstitute für Risikobewertung (BfR)" and FDA-21CFR 177.2600 requirements. However, the ERV-W rubber compensator is not approved for drinking water.

Temperature range -20 °C up to +90 °C (depending on medium), temporarily up to +100 °C. 


ERV-CR | Chloroprene


ERV-CR expansion joints are suitable for cold and warm water, including swimming pool water, sea water, waste water (weakly acid, alkaline or oil-contaminated),
cooling water with protective oils against corrosion, lubricating oil, grease and (compressed) air.

These expansion joints are not suitable for drinking water, acids, alkalis, chemicals, heating oil, fuels, solvents, other hydrocarbons and hot compressed air.

Temperature range -25 °C up to +100 °C (depending on medium), temporarily up to +100 °C. Electrically non-conductive.

ERP | Red Spot


ERP “Red Spot” expansion joints are cost-effective and highly flexible expansion joints for sanitary installations and various cold and warm water applications. They are electrically dissipative and suitable for pool water, sea water and drinking water.

The ERP compensator is not suitable for mineral oil products, cooling water with added oil containing corrosion preventatives, oil-contaminated compressor air and for a permanent working pressure that exceeds 10 bar.

Temperature range -40 °C up to +90 °C (depending on medium), temporarily up to +120 °C. 

ERV-BR | Blue Spot


ERV-BR expansion joints are typically used in the dredging industry due to their high resistance to abrasive media, such as such as sludges, slurries and other solid/liquid mixtures. These robust compensators are also suitable for all kinds of water (not oil-contaminated) as well as various chemicals. This type is not suitable for petroleum based products. 

For extreme strain (e. g. sharp and rough-edged matter) an even higher level of protection can be achieved by using an inner protection sleeve (type SR).
