Flanged Limit Rod Earthquake-Dilation Expansion Joints; Flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators are elements that do not have any standard assembly and production material type and have a very critical mission in pipelines. They are used to prevent deviations caused by the systemic mobility of pipelines. Deviations in pipelines due to system mobility are mostly in the lateral direction. Extra elements are needed to prevent these deviations. It is very important to prevent these deviations in order to protect the installation and protect other sensitive parts in the installation. Another important task of flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators is to protect the installation against possible ground movements.
What are Flanged Limit Rod Earthquake-Dilation Expansion Joints and What Does It Do?
Flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators are expansion parts in the most general sense. Its most basic function is to prevent lateral deviations in piping systems caused by system movement. At the same time, it has the feature of preventing lateral deviations that occur as a result of ground movements such as earthquakes.
Especially in installations with high cost or sensitive structure, it is extremely important to protect the installation as a whole. In such installations, the probability of occurrence of stress due to lateral movements is also high. In order to relieve the said stress over the installation, extra elements are needed. The main function of flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators is to keep this stress away from the installation.
What are Flanged Limit Rod Earthquake-Dilation Expansion Joints?
Flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators, with their flanged structure, ensure that the intense movements that occur on the ground in pipe installations are evenly distributed throughout the system. And it is an auxiliary element that prevents movements that can be observed horizontally or vertically. They are easily mounted to the installation and protect the installation especially against ground movements such as earthquakes.
It is possible to say that earthquake-dilatation compensators with flanged limit rods are mostly made of carbon steel. Dilatation compensators, in which carbon steel is used as the standard material, can also be produced from different materials according to the demands. The most important situation here is the structural features and needs of the piping installation. Especially in regions where earthquake risk is high, such precautions should definitely be taken.
Flanged Limit Rod Earthquake-Dilatation Expansion Joints What Do They Do?
Flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators are parts that prevent lateral deviations and ensure safe operation of the piping system. By dividing the system into parts, it disperses the effect of the resulting stress. Thus, it ensures safe and trouble-free operation of the piping system, and also prevents lateral movements that may occur.
Today, there is an extremely wide range of products in the dilatation compensators category. The main reason for the wide range of products is the connection type. In flanged piping systems, flanged dilatation compensator models should be preferred. For piping installations with welded pipes and grooved arrows, different models should be preferred. Here, it is very important to get information by consulting the experts while purchasing the dilatation compensator.
Where are Flanged Limit Rod Earthquake-Dilation Expansion Joints Used?
Flanged limit rod earthquake-dilatation compensators are suitable for all piping systems with flanged structure. Although it is produced from carbon steel as standard, it can also be manufactured from stainless steel according to demands. Models made of stainless steel have to meet different standards and these standards will differ according to the quality of the manufacturer.
It is possible to say that flanged dilatation compensators are used in many different areas today. These usage areas can be listed as follows;
In addition, flanged dilatation compensators can be preferred in the flange area at building transitions. There is no standard application in the assembly process of these compensators and therefore they can be mounted differently according to the needs.

Standard connection material is st37 carbon steel. Optionally, it can be manufactured according to AISI304, AISI316 stainless steel or other requested materials.
