U.S. Bellows, Inc. fabricated two metallic expansion joints on an expedited schedule. The expansion joints were fabricated from COR-TEN ASTM 588 carbon steel and are designed for 1.2 PSI at temperatures up to 748°F. The expansion joints were designed for an axial compression of 1.5″ and a lateral resultant movement of 1.84″. The entire expansion joint was shipped to the job site in one piece. This avoided having to splice weld the expansion joint into one piece, which saved the customer countless assembly man hours in the field.
