Seismic Expansion Joints with Gimbals
The seismic gimbals expansion joints are designed to handle movements in all directions.
This type of expansion joints have a pair of gimbal joints on each end to absorb the movements which are occur because of earthquake and ground settlements.
In addition to thermal movements in pipe lines, there are mechanical movements due to earthquakes, ground settlements and landslides. These type of movements can cause significiant damage to the piping systems in dilatation points of buildings, pipe junctions between vessels and boilers
These mechanical movements can be absorbed by using seismic expansion joints.
