Hinged Type Angular Expansion Joints
From Metallic Bellows
These Expansion Joints are used to compensate for the Angular movements of the piping. The Hinged type is used where angular movement is restricted to one plane only. The Gimbal type is used to compensate the angular movements in all planes.
- Angular movement is restricted to one plane.
- The Axial and Lateral forces are eliminated by the hinge construction.
- There are combined applications of in-plane or orthogonal-planes.
- During installation care should be taken for the plane of movement.
