L, U and V Flex Loops

Flex Weld Loops

APPLICATIONS:

  • Compensate for thermal expansion in all types of piping system.
  • Allow for random and unpredictable seismic movements.
  • Protects and increases longevity of equipment and piping by reducing and/or eliminating stress and strain.
  • Provide an access for easy pipe maintenance and condensate draining
  • Compensates for excessive lateral movements
  • Compensates for offset piping
  • Versatile flexible connector for pipe misalignment
  • In-the-wall design substitutes for bulky traditional expansion joints

SPECIALTY APPLICATIONS:

  • High pressure systems
  • Ultra-purity cleanliness
  • Corrosive

ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL BELLOWS-TYPE EXPANSION JOINTS:

  • Less space required
  • Easier to install
  • Lower product cost
  • Lower system hardware cost
  • Fewer anchors needed
  • Fewer guides needed
