Pipe expansion joints are used in systems that convey high temperature commodities such as steam or gases, or to absorb movement and vibration.
A typical type of expansion joint for pipe systems is a bellows which can be manufactured from metal (most commonly stainless steel), plastic (such as PTFE), or anelastomer such as rubber. A bellows is made up of a series of one or more convolutions, with the shape of the convolution designed to withstand the internal pressures of the pipe, but flexible enough to accept the axial, lateral, and/or angular deflections. Expansion joints are also designed for other criteria, such as noise absorption, anti-vibration, earthquake movement, and building settlement.
Pipe expansion joints are also known as compensator, as they 'compensate' for the thermal movement.
IRPC Manufactures expansion joints from sizes 20mm NB to 600mm NB.
