Angular expansion joints are suitable for installations where it is not possible to
create sturdy fixing points, and in pipe systems where bending occurs.
Since the angular expansion joints can only absorb bending, at least, 2 or 3 angular
expansion joints are required everytime to ensure correct absorption of the
Lateral expansion joint can only move sideways(laterally) on
one or more planes, making it possible for those movements which are
perpendicular to the longitudinal direction to be absorbed. Lateral expansion
joints are therefore ideal for installation in pipe systems with bends.
The pressure balanced expansion joint is used to relieve loads on equipment
such as pumps, compressors and turbines.
The pressure balanced expansion joint will be negligible when compared to
the cost of additional equipment, piping and building space which would be
necessary for safe functioning of the equipment without the expansion joint.
