KRS-31 Hinged-Flanged End Angular expansion joints are the specific ones, absorbing the thermal expansion of the pipeline by transforming them to angular movements in a plane vertical to the axis. They may absorb the movements in one or more directions (in a plane vertical to the axis of the pipe). The assemblies consisting of two or more lateral expansion joints may absorb big amounts of expansions..

What Is Angular Movement ?
The movements resulting fromangulations of the expansion joints with respect to their axes are called angular movements. As it can be seen in the figure, thermal expansion in both the horizontal and vertical legs can be absorbed by using hinged expansion joints. Following points should be taken into consideration by locating expansion joints to such piping systems:
1. The distances L1 and L2 should be made the maximum possible,
2. The distance L3 should be made the minimum possible.
In order to keep offset and frictional forces affecting the expansion joints and anchors small, the hinges should be designed in the way to compensate the pressure thrust and weight of the pipe between the two expansion joints.
