A customer’s existing expansion joint failed and caused a plant to shut down. They required an immediate replacement joint. This universal expansion joint order was placed, designed, and fabricated in just one day. The order came in at 8:30 am on Saturday, Labor Day weekend, and was shipped at 4:00 pm, which minimized the time of the plant shut down. This universal expansion joint is 96″ in overall length, 20″ inside diameter, and can absorb 3.25″ lateral movement. A 100% dye-penetration test and a hydro-test were performed to ensure quality.
