limit rod


limit rod
devices, usually in the form of rods or bars, attached to the expansion joint assembly whose primary function is to restrict the bellows movement range (axial, lateral and angular) during normal operation. They are designed to prevent over-extension or over-compression of the bellows while restraining the full pressure loading and dynamic forces generated by a main anchor failure.
