What Are Expansion Joints?

Expansion Joints are designed to safely absorb the movement in pipework systems due to heat-induced expansion and contraction of pipework.

What industries use expansion joints?

Well packing
Sunny Steel expansion joints come in a wide variety of designs.

We offer a standard range of products that are available off the shelf for immediate delivery and also customised expansion joints that are designed to meet specific client requirements. Our range of expansion joint products includes axial, lateral, angular and gimbal.

Expansion joints are available with a range of end connections to suit client requirements such as flanged, screwed, mapress system fittings, weld ends and grooved ends.

However should site conditions demand a unique solution then end connections can be adapted to most applications.

Slip-type Joints

Slip-joints are installed in-line with the piping system, and compress as the pipe expands into them. This expansion is accommodated by a sleeve that slips into an outer shell. To prevent leakage through the slip joint, sealing materials are packed around the sleeve inside the shell.
