Expansion Joints

Universal Gaskets Expansion Joints offer superior performance, reliability, and service life, resulting in improved plant safety and increased mechanical integrity of equipment. As specifically engineered products that are inserted in a rigid piping system, our Expansion Joints will:

  • Absorb movement

  • Improve thermal stability

  • Relieve system strain due to thermal change, load stress, pumping surges, wear of settling

  • Reduce mechanical noise

  • Compensate for misalignment

  • Eliminate electrolysis between dissimilar metals (Rubber Expansion Joints)

All of our expansion joints carry safety ratings that exceed product specifications in areas such as pressure and movement. Non-metallic expansion joints and flexible couplings are ideally suited for a wide variety of industries.

In order to offer a complete product range for our customers, we also supply rubber expansion joints. Rubber expansion joints are flexible units that are manufactured from natural or synthetic elastomers or fluoroplastics. If necessary, a reinforcement of the bellow (steel, nylon or aramid) may be added. Rubber expansion joints are the perfect solution for pipe systems to absorb movements, vibrations or noise, resulting in the significantly prolonged service life of the pipe work and connected equipment.

Stainless Steel Expansion Joints

Fixed flanged expansion joints are equipped with welded carbon steel or stainless steel flanges. It absorbs mainly axial movements with possibility of some lateral movements. Even though they can absorb movements in any direction, this type is mainly used for axial movements. If lateral movement is requested, a universal type may be more suitable. These type of expansion joints can be supplied with limit  rod, liners, covers, rods, hinges or gimbals. Available for exhaust gas, liquid medium and steam. Bellows are calculated following latest EJMA standards. Also, fixed flanged type expansion joints may have a double bellows which are designed for absorbing the higher lateral movements.
