Selecting the right fabric expansion joint for your system is important toward ensuring reliable operation. A properly designed and installed fabric expansion joint can ensure uninterrupted plant performance between scheduled maintenance shutdowns.
By combining different materials for the fabric expansion joints and taking into consideration the thermal, chemical and mechanical resistance as well as the fatigue properties of the material, our designers provide the optimum solutions both technically and economically.
We deliver all types and sizes of fabric expansion joints - for all industiral applications - including power generation, refineries, phramaceutical industry, food industry, cement industry and many others.
Which type of fabric expansion joint to use and its design depends on some fundamental considerations:
Place and conditions of installation for the fabric expansion joint
Mechanical loads of the expansion joint
Leakage requirements for the system in which the fabric expansion joint is installed
Temperature conditions in which the fabric expansion joints works
