Hyspan designs and manufactures a comprehensive selection of products for Commercial and HVAC pipe motion applications in district energy, building new construction, university distributed energy, municipal support, military facilities, building modernization, and other sites.
Most applications involve absorbing thermal expansion or contraction; however, other applications involve seismic isolation, vibration isolation, relative motion compensation for building settlement, and flow measurement.
For more than a half-century, we have designed, engineered, manufactured, tested, and acquired various expansion joint technologies. This unique and extensive experience provides Hyspan exceptional capabilities in this critical industry.
Hyspan’s complete line of products includes metal bellows expansion joints, packed expansion joints, ball joints, metal hoses, and accessory products such as pipe guides and flow measurement venturis.
