LONG DURABILITY

LOW MAINTENANCE

RIGID FOR MANY OVERHEAD FACILITIES

Metallic expansion joints are produced with one or more bellows. These bellows allow the compensation of axial and lateral movements but only in a limited range. It is possible to add lateral tie rods either to limit or to direct the needed expansion. The type of metal to be used is determined by the type of flow; it is also possible to add inside deflectors for protection. And finally, the thickness of the metal will depend on the pressure.
Resistance to high pressures and low maintenance costs are the principal advantages of metal expansion joints.
Their stiffness turns out to be a great advantage in big installations where many aerial supports are needed. This way they help to maintain and preserve the structure of the installation.

METALLIC EXPANSIONS JOINTS

INSTALLATION CAN BE DONE EITHE:

MODEL WITH FLOATING BRIDES

• By adding flanges with the dimensional norms DIN, ANSI, PN or else.

MODEL WITH INTEGRATED BRIDES

• Moyennant soudure directe sur tuyaux.

Up to diameters of 8000mm !

INTERNATIONNALLY RECOGNIZED STANDARDS

In classical metals like S235JR*, stainless steel as AISI 321*, 304*, 316* or allied nickel like Monel, Inconel 600 or 625, Ferlam Compensateurs is able to provide exactly what is needed.*Used names and numbers may be different depending on country.

Don’t hesitate putting us under pressure, all our expansion joints are produced in accordance to the most severe norms. Whether it is EJMA, ASME, AD Merkblatter or else, all or almost all international recognized norms can be applied on request. Even metal can be flexible!

As for all expansion joints, the movements can be absorbed in different directions:

The axial movements.
The axial movements.
The lateral movements.
The lateral movements.
The angular movements.
