U Style Loop

They absorb up to 24" of movement resulting from thermal changes and misalignment in a piping system. It also dampens vibration and reduces the transmission of noise. 2-Leg U style Loops are designed to be pressure tested 1.5 times their maximum rated working pressure and manufactured with a 4:1 safety factor. They reduce the need for the added installation expense of traditional long length pipe loops and their compact design saves valuable space.

2-Leg U style loops do not impose additional thrust loads on the piping system and thus reducing the need for costly anchoring or thrust blocks.
