Wherever strong forces act in industrial machinery and equipment, only part of the energy applied contributes directly to the product manufacturing process. The rest acts on the machinery and equipment itself, either in the form of mechanical forces such as movements and vibrations or varying pressure conditions or in the form of aggressive media or extreme temperatures.
Expansion joints reduce these loads and, as a result, extend not only the useful life of machinery and equipment but also the maintenance intervals, ie they guarantee smooth and thus economic processes.
Plant manufacturers like to opt for quality rather than cheap solutions where large sums of money are in the final instance involved. This explains why expansion joints from Frenzelit are used so frequently at these crucial interfaces in machinery and equipment manufacturing.
