Expansion joints absorb movement due to thermal expansion and contraction of pipes, wear, load stresses and settling of supports and foundations
Custom expansion joints can be manufactured with offsets to account for installation errors in pipe alignment, or for movement and settling over time
With special elastomers, abrasion can be significantly reduced compared to other rubber or metallic connectors
Rubber expansion joints significantly reduce vibration when installed in proper locations and are not subject to metal fatigue failure
Transmission of sound is reduced as the expansion joint acts as a dampener and absorbs the noise levels
Effects of pressure surges, water hammer, or pump cavitation are resisted
Go metal to metal contact eliminating electrolysis between dissimilar metals
Greatly reduced space required compared to expansion bends or loops
Olympus Seal and Supply metal expansion joints are designed to accommodate the thermal expansion or contraction of pipes, ducts and other equipment subjected to temperature fluctuations of hot and cold fluids. This thermal growth is one of the main difficulties encountered when designing interconnecting piping or ducting.
Expansion joints for piping systems are flexible connectors, made out of PTFE, natural or synthetic elastomers, with combinations of rubber, fabric and metal reinforcement. Expansion joints are installed into piping systems to solve various problems.
If “off-the-shelf” joints won’t address your application, we’ve got you covered. We can select & engineer a custom solution for your unique situation. We are regularly prescribing sophisticated materials, creating over-sized parts, and customizing items in order to fabricate the best product for our customers.
Olympus Seal and Supply stocks ChemTite® PTFE valves for severe duty applications. ChemTite® products are built with American quality for peace of mind and dependability in tough chemical applications.
