Product Description

The Cablesphere is another Metraflex innovation that simplifies the lives of installers and engineers alike with the added feature of factory installed control cables to restrain the hydrostatic end load.   There are no control rods to keep track of and install. The Cablesphere is part of the Metrasphere family of joints and has all the benefits of the Metrasphere.

The Cablesphere’s cables limit the extension of the joint, making it primarily a pump or equipment connector.  It can also be used as an expansion joint if EJMA guidelines are followed. Control rods are not needed.

Product Highlights

  • Ideal for reducing noise and vibration in a piping system.
  • Reduces pipe stress in your system.
  • Features Floating flanges to make up for companion flanges that are not properly two holed.
  • Handles movement in all directions.
  • Available in EPDM, Neoprene, or Nitrile elastomers with nylon cord reinforcement.
  • Self-cleaning.
  • Does not require a gasket.
  • See tables for maximum temperature and pressure ratings.
