U.S. Bellows designed a 20″ x 13″ rectangular fabric expansion joint for a plant in Louisiana. This unit was custom designed to improve the current design by eliminating the need for insulation. The fabric belt consists of five layers and the frame is fabricated from 321 stainless steel. The expansion joint is designed for 1-7/8″ lateral movement at 1350°F and ± 10 psig and was 100% dye-penetrant tested prior to shipment.
