While "off the shelf" solutions are available, custom designed expansion joints can be engineered to suit any application
Team of engineers and ASME IX certified welders can design and fabricate any expansion joint to enhance its performance and extends its service life
Hose Master Metal Expansion Joints can be fabricated with nominal diameter of 2"-120", sustain pressure up to 3000psi, and temperature ranges from -450°F to 2000°F
The bellows of a Metal Expansion Joint are made up of a series of convolutions, with the shape of the convolutions designed to withstand the internal pressures of the pipe, but also flexible enough to accept axial, lateral, and angular deflections. They have a size range of 2"-120", can withstand pressures of full vacuum to 3000psi, have a temperature range of -450°F to 2000°F, and are available in a wide variety of alloys, including numerous forms of stainless steel and nickel.
Metal Expansion Joints are a good choice when Elastomeric Expansion Joints just cannot meet the application's requirements.
Customized solutions are essential in industrial engineering because of individual design criteria. Corrosive fluids, large movements, vibrations, and a wide variety of pressure levels, as well as extreme temperatures: The person responsible for plant engineering or equipment design must take many factors into consideration. High quality expansion joints supplied by Gallagher are as practical as they are cost-effective. Together with your team, Gallagher will discuss your proposal and its requirements and then create a detailed quotation with precise technical specifications.
