Product Description

The Double Cablesphere is the result of adding the Metraflex innovation of factory installed control cable to the Doublesphere.  The control cables restrain the hydrostatic end load so there is no need for control rods.  The Double Cablesphere handles more movement than a Cablesphere and provides all the value. The Double Cablesphere’s cables limit the extension of the joint, so it is 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.
  • Control rods are not needed.
  • See tables for maximum temperature and pressure ratings.
