We leverage our resources to provide our customers with the highest value-added and most cost-effective engineered knitted wire mesh solutions available...
Flex-Joint SealsOperational stresses such as thermal expansion, vibrations and engine torque make exhaust system connections very susceptible to leaks. ACS' knitted wire mesh flex-joint seals stop these leaks. Also applicable in static joints, they absorb dynamic movement in exhaust systems caused by simple operational functions like turning an engine on or braking hard. Exhaust components with rigid pipe connections are prone to leaks, increased noise and vibration and overall premature failure.
To compensate for different operating requirements, fillers such as grafoil, mica and VGF are added to knitted wire mesh skeletons. Flex-joint seals are usually made from 300 series stainless steel, though ACS' design and applications engineers are available to advise on alternate alloy and filler selections. Our experience as a flex joint manufacturer ensures that your project will be done right.
