An expansion joint is a flexible element that compensates movements between pipelines, among other things in case of vibrations in lateral or axial directions, temperature differences, or wall ducts. They are used in pipeline construction as well as in plant and apparatus construction. Depending on the application, expansion joints are made of different materials. Neoprene, EPDM, Hypalon, silicone, Viton, or PTFE are used among other materials.
For our customers, we manufacture each expansion joint individually.
In the process, we take into account the respective operation-specific parameters.
Substantially, three designs can be distinguished:
By using various materials and respective material combinations, it is possible to work out an optimal problem solution both from a technical and economic point of view. This is substantially determined by the
The design itself is always defined by the following groups of material and the corresponding tasks:
