Eaton Flexmaster Flexible Joints

Flex master flexible joints are available in both standard and self-restrained styles. The self-restrained style has a stainless steel gripping ring inside each gasket. This feature allows the joint to maintain a firm grip on the pipe or tube, preventing movement along the pipe or tube.

The bulged, straight-through Flexmaster joints accommodate angular misalignment up to ±4o per end. Tees, elbows, and crosses accommodate angular misalignment up to ±2o per end. Flexmaster joints are designed for up to 300 psi (2.07 MPa) service, depending on application and size.

Flexmaster Standard Joints

Standard Features

1. Gasket provides compression seal when tightened against tube or pipe.
2. Hinged coupling provides for quick, easy assembly.
3. Bulged sleeve allows for ±4º angular misalignment. All gasket materials listed on page 4 are available in the standard style, increasing the number of suitable applications.

Flexmaster Self-Restrained Joints

Standard Features

1. Gasket provides compression seal when tightened against tube or pipe.
2. Hinged coupling provides for quick, easy assembly.
3. Bulged sleeve allows for ±4º angular misalignment.
4. Notched channel ring which grips pipe firmly to restrict movement along pipe or tubing.
Gasket materials available include the C (Buna-N) and D (EPDM) compounds.

Flexmaster absorbs vibration
Pipe vibration and noise can be drastically reduced with Flexmaster joints. The resilient, thick rubber of the Flexmaster joint gasket absorbs vibration and noise. Use of the self-restrained style restricts movement along vibrating pipes and tubes.

Misaligned pipes are no problem
The Flexmaster joint design eliminates flanged bolt holes and pipe threads that require careful alignment. The Flexmaster bulged joint permits up to a total of ±4º angular installation misalignment at each end while maintaining a leakproof seal.

Easy to install
Installation time can be slashed by using Flexmaster joints. Basic assembly tools are all that’s needed. After extensive use, the gaskets can be replaced easily and quickly.
