Lateral Expansion Joint

Lateral expansion joints refer to the direction perpendicular to the pipe expansion joint's centre line. The terms PARALLEL OFFSET and TRANSVERCE are also used to describe lateral deflection. Tied lateral expansion joints or Tied universal expansion joints are other names for lateral expansion joints.

In order to absorb a high number of lateral deflections, two bellows are connected by a centre spool (piece of pipe), and tie rods are fastened on the outer ends for optimum deflection absorption. The length of the centre spool (centre piece) is critical. If the weight of the middle spool is large, lugs are used to support it. The Tied universal expansion joint has the advantage of being able to be employed in locations where the piping joints are not all in the same spot.
