Pressure Balanced Pipe Expansion Joints
There are two basic types of pressure balanced pipe expansion joints, those that are designed to accept only axial movements in straight pipe lines (commonly referred to as In-line Pressure Balanced Expansion Joints) and those that are required to accept lateral and axial movements in combination due to a change of direction in the pipe line, the latter being characterised by an integral ‘elbow’ forming part of the expansion joint.
In situations where there is limited space or where sufficient anchoring of the system is impractical, pressure balanced expansion joints are an ideal solution given that they are ‘restrained’ joints, therefore only relatively light anchoring is required as the pressure thrust generated is contained by the integral tie-bar arrangement.
