Expansion joints absorb movement, improve thermal stability, reduce mechanical noise and compensate for misalignment. This will improve factory performance, reliability and service life. These are engineered products designed to be inserted into piping that is rigid. Increase your equipment mechanical integrity and relieve system strain due to thermal change, wear, settling, pumping surges or stress from loads.
