When To Use Expansion Joints

Expansion joints are defined as a device containing one or more metal bellows used to absorb dimensional changes such as those caused by thermal expansion or contraction of a pipe-line, duct, or vessel.

Expansion joints are typically used for axial and lateral movement to provide extension, compression, and movement parallel to flow in a pipeline.

Expansion Joint Capabilities

There are a few misconceptions about using expansion joints. We’re here to clarify how we can customize and build an optimal solution.

  • A multiple-ply pump connector can be more pliable than a short braided hose
  • Bellows can be joined together to create universal expansion joints to handle larger unilateral movements
  • Expansion joints can be more expensive, but they are designed to last for years
  • Multi-ply expansion joints have excellent vibration and sound dampening properties

Expansion Joints vs. Metal Hose

Braided metal hose assemblies and expansion joints are very similar in characteristics, however it is the difference in construction that determines which type is best for particular applications.

In this article, we take a look at both types and compare their similarities.
