Metraflex MLT 80200 2" Expansion Joint
The Metraloop is called an expansion joint, but it is really much more dynamic then a typical expansion joint.
The typical Metraloop installation is axial for thermal applications, or in any possible direction for seismic applications. And when we say any possible direction that includes axial, lateral and angular. Piping systems are used to convey hot water, chilled water, steam, condensate, potable water, fire sprinkler lines, gas lines, waste lines, and the list keeps going. What all these applications have in common is that they all would benefit from a Metraloop.
The Metraloop utilizes the time-tested hose and braid technology, installed perpendicular to the pipeline. Like all the products in the Metraloop family of products, the Metraloop does not develop thrust loads and this results in almost eliminating the need for guides, simplifying anchor design when compared to in line bellows expansion joints. When you place a Metraloop in your line, you instantly reduce the stresses in the line.
