Metal expansion joints are supplied by EagleBurgmann Australia Pty Ltd for industrial environments.

The basic element of a metal expansion joint is the bellows – a flexible, corrugated tubular metal element designed to absorb movements in a piping system.

In the operating environment, the critical stresses and movements may act in axial, lateral or angular directions and the bellows in a metal expansion joint must therefore be designed and dimensioned to accommodate these movements.

Special designs for the metal expansion joint are documented by means of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), a 3D technique that provides a high degree of documentation and detailing.

Additionally, the technique can predict how a structure or assembly will react to forces caused by heat, vibration and mechanical stress in operating conditions.
