Externally Pressurized Expansion Joint – Construction

Fittings:

Flanges or beveled weld ends are standard.

Internal & External Guides:

Insures proper guiding of pipe inside joint.

Drain:

For draining liquids or location for installing a steam trap.

Externally Pressurized

Externally pressurized expansion joints are designed for use in straight pipe runs to accomodate for high pressure and large thermal expansion and contraction. External pressure is applied to th bellow via a gap between the internal flange and housing. This keeps the bellows from becoming unstable, thus, allowing a longer bellows to be manufactured.
