Hyspan Ball Joints - Hyspan Product Lines
Offset® Ball Joints
Provide a cost effective means of accommodating pipe movement in systems where thermal expansion, shock, seismic and torsional forces are present. Off-Set® Ball Joints reduce pipe and connection stresses without the space and weight of typical pipe loops or the high costs of laminated flexible jumpers.
Metal Hose Connectors
Braided metal connectors used to compensate for small installation misalignment and to absorb motion and vibration from mechanical equipment.
Metal Expansion Joints
to accommodate lateral, axial and angular piping movements caused by thermal, pressure or mechanical expansion.
For vibration and limited axial, lateral and angular movements resulting from operation of pumps and mechanical equipment.
Strut Joints and Vibration Dampeners
To support structures and piping, restrain undesirable structural movements, absorb and dampen dynamic vibration and shock on piping and equipment from outside the pipeline.
Hyspan Precision Products has earned prominence as a designer and manufacturer of expansion joints for the world market.
Founded in 1968, Hyspan provides industry with a broad spectrum of conventional and innovative products designed to solve thermal expansion and pressurized as well as pressure balanced bellows expansion joints.
Configurations include single or dual bellows, tied universals, hinges, and gimbals. Rectangular expansion joints are available for low pressure of full vacuum service. Hyspan also manufactures metal bellows pump connectors, flexible metal hose connectors, packed slip style expansion joints, compensators and pipe guides.
