Themovementsoccured in twodirections can only be absorbedbyusingLateral Expansion Joints. Universal tiedexpansionjointsaremadeup of twobellowsconnectedeachotherby an intermediatepipeand a system of tierodsabletowithstandthethrustresulted of theinternalpressure.


Thistype of expansionjointsareusedtoabsorblateralmovements in allplanes. Also, with a special
positioning of twotierods at 180 degrees, theexpansionjointsbocomesabletoabsorbsomelateralandangulardeflections at thesame time.

Theamount of lateraldeflectiondepends on the convolution number of thebellows on eachside of theexpansionjoint. Thisamount can also be increasedbychangingthelength of theintermediatepipe. Thetierodsarealsoeffectivetopreventpossibletorsionforces.
