Axial Expansion Joints

Stainless steel expansion joints are essential flexible elements of modern pipe technology. They offer the perfect solution in absorbing expansion caused by temperature changes in pipe systems. Furthermore, they are able to compensate any vibrations which may occur in pumping systems, motors, compressors, or turbines under working conditions that are not suitable for rubber expansion joints. The basic advantages to be gained from using stainless steel expansion joints are:

Main characteristic of a stainless steel expansion joint is the flexibility of its bellow. This flexibility results from the bellow’s geometrical shape and the number of convolutions. Also, the thickness of each ply and the materials used for construction play an important role in defining the characteristics of the expansion joint.

Applications

The most common and simple type of compensation is provided by an axial stainless steel expansion joints. These axial compensators counteract linear changes in the longitudinal direction of a pipeline due to thermal expansion, but with proper design can also compensate some lateral and angular movements and even vibration. Unrestrained axial stainless steel expansion joints do not restrain pressure thrust so adequate anchors and guides must be provided and they can be used only in piping systems that incorporate correctly designed anchors and pipe alignment guides.

In order to assure proper operation for any stainless steel axial expansion joint please take in consideration the following notes regarding basic installation:

ROTH stainless steel axial expansion joints are designed, manufactured and approved in accordance to industy's most recognized standards: EJMA Standards and/or ASME Code for 'Pressure Vessel and Heat Exchanger Expansion Joints App. BB Sect. VIII' under the close suppervision of our engineers in order to meet each and every application specificity.
