This type of exhaust expansion joints are installed very close to the engines and are subjected to severe conditions of temperature, movements and vibrations. The design of this type of expansion joints requires a thorough expertise due to the challenging demands on them like:
High temperatures in manifold area, more than 400 deg C
- Absorption of high thermal expansion and severe vibrations,
thereby resulting in stress relief
- Temperature peaks according to engine output.
- Compact overall dimensions due to space restrictions
- Easy and quick dismantling and assembly to avoid engine down-time
These expansion joints can be supplied with the required end connections matching to adjacent pipe. Also one flange can be supplied in rotary condition to properly align the flange holes with the mating flange at site of installation
