ABRA-LINE™ Expansion Joints for Highly Abrasive Applications
Garlock has recently added a new product to their expansion joint lineup. The ABRA-LINE™ family of products was developed for highly abrasive applications typically found in the power generation, fertilizer, mining and chemical industries.
These may include flue gas desulphurization systems, phosphate mining, dry bulk power transfer systems, tailings and slurry applications. Our proprietary urethane formula was designed to reduce wear and extend service life.
