Universal Unrestrained Metal Expansion Joint
The main mission of the universal unrestrained metal expansion joint (USO, UFO and UGO) is to absorb lateral, axial and angular expansion movements, both thermal and mechanical.
This metal expansion joint 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.
Because of its configuration, the designer must bear in mind that these meatl expansion joints transmit pressure stresses to the fixed points and guides of the piping system.
