Seismic Expansion Joints
VITALFLEX® – Seismic Joints and Expansion Loops
Model name: VITALFLEX-V and VITALFLEX-U
VITALFLEX® seismic joints and expansion loops are engineered to account for the cumulative movement(s) in piping
systems. The VITALFLEX® joints have been designed to counter thermal expansion/contraction, offset and rotation.
Piping used in locations subject to seismic conditions have their own set of unexpected random movements. The random
motion common to earthquakes, requires that seismic expansion joints be capable of movement in any direction and are
able to withstand the acceleration forces.
