Gimbal-type expansion joints are strategically incorporated into pipelines to accommodate the dynamic movements resulting from various factors, including dilation caused by distinct zones and seismic shifts triggered by earthquakes, to ensure system safety. These expansion joints are meticulously engineered to effectively absorb movements along the x, y, and z axes in alignment with the system's specific requirements.
Comprising double-ply bellows, an intermediate pipe, flanges, and gimbals, gimbal-type expansion joints are adept at averting any potential collapse by employing bellows and gimbals on both ends. They find application not only in dilatation zones and underground pipelines but also prove versatile in handling a wide spectrum of flow media.
