Universal Expansion Joint

Universal Expansion Joint

Universal Expansion Joints have two separate Bellows in the assembly that are joined by a pipe section in the center. This design allows for large amounts of lateral deflection. Also, the assembly can accept movements axially and laterally. Universal expansion joints must be properly mounted and supported, similar to single unrestrained expansion joints. This expansion joint does not come with pressure resisting hardware.

The universal Expansion Joint is particularly well adapted to the absorption of lateral deflection.  In addition, this design may be used to absorb axial movement, angular rotation or any combination of the three.  A typical applications are tied universal Expansion joint used to absorb lateral deflection in a single plane “Z” bend.  Where dimensional feasible, the Expansion Joint should be designed to fill the offset leg entirely so that its expansion is absorbed  as lateral deflection by Expansion Joint.
