It is the safest and most
reliable means of absorbing up to 8 inches of movement resulting from
thermal changes, random seismic shifts, and misalignment in a piping
system. It also dampens vibration and reduces the transmission of noise.
Tri-Flex Loops are designed to be pressure tested 1.5 times their
maximum rated working pressure and manufactured with a 4:1 safety
factor. The Tri-Flex Loop eliminates the need for the added installation
expense of traditional long length pipe loops and its compact design
saves valuable space.
Tri-Flex Loops do not
impose additional thrust loads on the piping system and thus eliminate
the need for costly anchoring or thrust blocks while also eliminating
pipe guides required by traditional pipe designs such as expansion pipe
loops or expansion joints.
