KRS-15 District Heating expansion joints are used to absorb the thermal expansion parallel to the axis of the straight pipelines. Long piping systems are divided into shorter expanding sections, and isolated by main anchors. Thus the movements in the individual expanding sections are absorbed by the KRS-15 axial expansion joints in this section.

What Is Axial Movement ?
The movements of expansion or contraction parallel to the axis of the bellows are called axial movements. KRS-14 Axial expansion joints are used to absorb the thermal expansion parallel to the axis of the straight pipelines. Long piping systems are divided into shorter expanding sections, and isolated by main anchors. Thus the movements in the individual expanding sections are absorbed by the KRS-6 axial expansion joints in this section.
FIGURE 1: This figure shows the simplest and most basic application of an axial expansion joint. The sequence of installation steps to pay attention to follows:
1. Only one expansion joint may be installed between two main anchors.
2. Main anchors are located in the direction of pipeline.
3. An expansion joint is located next to each main anchor.
4. The fi rst pipe alignment guide is located within the distance of 4 pipe diameters next to the axial expansion joint.
5. The second pipe alignment guide is located within the distance of 14 pipe diameters next to the fi rst pipe alignment guide.
6. The distances between the other pipe alignment guides to be located are determined according to the Pipe Guide Spacing Chart by EJMA (Expansion Joint Manufacturers Association).
