Slangkompaniet metal expansion joints can be used in temperatures ranging from -262 – +700 °C. The joints are used for thermal expansion, for various movements and to reduce vibration. The expansion joints make assembly easier and tension free. They are completely diffusion tight and resist aggressive media such as alkalines.
Our standard expansion joints are suited for WP 16 Bar. For example in district heating systems and exhaust systems with 2.5 bar. For higher temperatures we have other materials that can be used above 1000 °C and for corrosive media we have higher grades of alloys available. For exhaust or very cold media we recommend AISI 321 as the most cost efficient solution.
