Expansion joints are an important part in each exhaust pipe. The convoluted section of the expansion joint is designed to accommodate the movements due to thermal expansion in the piping system. It also prevents the propagation of vibrations. Consequently the expansion joints have to be as flexible as possible. This flexibility is acquired by the use of very thin, multilayer material as well as by making the bellows as high as possible. All the TIO BV expansion joints can handle large movements at minimal axial and lateral loads. Our stainless steel bellows are hydrauliccaly forced, which guarantees high flexibility and a durable performance.
In the datasheet you can find sizes and maximal movements of our standard expansion bellows.
