Double Gimbal Metal Expansion Joint
The main mission of the Double Gimbal Metal Expansion Joint (universal metal expansion joint UFTC and USTC) is to absorb angular and lateral expansion movements on two planes both thermal and mechanical origin.
Double Gimbal Metal Expansion Joint (universal metal expansion joint for angular and lateral expansion movements on two planes) is composed of a single bellow of several waves in the form of “U”. These waves are made by one or more metal sheets longitudinally welded and shaped hydraulically or mechanically.
Due to its configuration, the designer must bear in mind that these models DO NOT transmit pressure stresses to the fixed points and guides of the piping system.
