Expansion Loops

Description

APPLICATIONS:

Compensates for thermal expansion in all types of piping systems and allows for random and unpredictable seismic movements.
Protects and increases longevity of equipment and piping by reducing and/or eliminating stress and strain.
Provides an access for easy pipe maintenance and condensate draining.
Compensates for excessive offset and lateral movement.
In-the-wall design substitutes for bulky traditional expansion joints.

SPECIALTY APPLICATIONS:

High pressure systems
Ultra-purity cleanliness
Corrosive

ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL BELLOWS-TYPE EXPANSION JOINTS:

Less space required and easier to install.
Fewer anchors and guides required.
