EXPANSION AND SEISMIC 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
expansion loops
