Expansion Joints

Metal Expansion Joints

Metal expansion joints are designed to absorb axial, lateral and angular movements in any combination.
They are divided in different families for different working conditions:

Metal expansion joints can be provided with round or rectangular sections.

Rubber Expansion Joints

Rubber expansion joints are flexible connectors made from elastomers, designed to accommodate the different types of movements encountered on different types of process equipment:

  • Noise reduction
  • Vibrations isolation
  • Stress neutralization: axial, lateral, angular and torsional
  • Misalignment compensation at plant start-ups

Rubber expansion joints are used to transport fluids under a wide range of pressures (positive or vacuum) and temperatures.

Fabric Expansion Joints

Fabric expansion joints are composite structures, combining different material and utilizing their combined thermal, chemical, mechanical resistance and fatigue properties in order to provide technical solutions for specific applications.
They are commonly used for:

  • Absorbing thermal expansion
  • Allowing axial, lateral and angular motion

Fabric expansion joints can be provided in different shapes (round, rectangular or other).

Transfer Lines

Transfer lines are utilized to move fluids over a wide range of operating temperatures. Piping utilized in transfer lines is typically made from different types of steel, dependent upon applications:

  • Carbon steel
  • Stainless steel

They can be insulated with castable refractory layer or refractory blankets to maintain and preserve high operating temperatures.
