SummeryThe simplest form of expansion joint, for the purpose of absorbing any combination of the three basic movements(axial, lateral and angular) of the pipe section in which it is installed can be accommodated.
Features· Deflect in any direction
Types of Movement· Absorbs small amounts of lateral, axial, and angular movements
SummerySingle tied bellows is a single bellow but with an addition of tie rods. The tie rods are normally attached to the end pipes or flanges with lugs that carry pressure thrust of the system. This thus eliminated the need of main anchors. By adding tie rods, the bellows cannot expand, hence axial growth is lost.
Features· Simplest, most economical design
Types of Movement· Only lateral and angularmovement
