Expansion joints are flexible mechanical elements, mainly existing of one or several metal bellows connected with flanges, weld or thread fittings on one or both ends. This may also include internal guide tubes, external protective sleeves, anchor ties etc.
The primary applications of expansion joints are in piping systems and sanitary technology using them
• to compensate pipe expansions and shrinkage due to temperature changes,
• as elements to match non-aligned pipes,
• to make pipe assembly easier,
• to dampen vibration and noise.
