Suitable for angular movement in all planes controlled by the hinges on the gimbal rings.
Manufactured to the guidelines laid down in the Standards of the Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association Inc. (EJMA).
Pressure Rating – standard joints
4, 10 and 20 bars – subject to pressure capability of attached hardware.
Bore Size Range – standard
50 – 1500mm
Type GFF – fixed flanges both ends
Type GWW – pipe weld ends both ends

Pipework System Notes
Gimbal hardware is attached to contain pressure thrust forces, and in many cases could support the dead weight of the adjacent pipework. Heavy expensive main anchors are not necessary and only minimal guiding is required.
RADCOFLEX recommends you consult your pipework engineer on pipework design and expansion joint selection.
