Metal Bellows Compensators
Stainless Steel Expansion Joint
Metal Expansion Joint

Metal Bellows CompensatorsConsidering working conditions and working pressure Metal Expansion Joints usually working in temperature range from -200 °C up to +550 °C sometimes over + 950°C or higher.

Usually produced / supplied by Hosemann Metal Expansion Joints – Metal Bellows Compensators are made of stainless steel SUS321, sometimes SUS304 or SUS316, or when we proposing Metal Expansion Joints for high temperature we using SUS310S steel what give us maximal working temperature for Hosemann’s Expansion Joint going up to +1050 °C.

Metal Expansion Joints are supplied with flanges or stub pipes are ususaly made of SUS304 / St37 other materials on request.

Special Construction Customized Expansion Joint are produced on request.

In our production range you can find Metal Expansion Joint working in temp. range ­ up to +900 °C ( Metal Expansion Joint for recuperation )

Axial Compensator ( Axial Expansion Joints ) only used for axial movements. Very small lateral movements are also possible to compensate.
Angular Compensator ( Angular Expansion Joints ) welded hinge allows movement in one plane
Lateral Compensator ( Latheral Expansion Joints ) is designed to compensate for lateral movements in different planes.
Gimbal Compensator ( Gimbal Expansion Joints ) allows movement in any possible plane.
Universal Compensators ( Universal Expansion Joints ) are designed compensate larger then normal lateral movements
