Slip Joint Expansion Joints
Slip joint type Expansion Joints have been designed to address thermal expansion in pipeline, and process piping applications. These are used when the primary problem is a large axial movement. Materials can be selected to accommodate high temperatures and pressures. Design details include selection of packing and seals and perhaps resistance to abrasive solids. Some applications may require surfaces to minimize abrasive wear. Options are available with to specifically address adverse process conditions.
