This rectangular fabric expansion joint is designed for high air circulation flow for an air cooling loop duct in a power plant. It measures 81″ L x 18″ W x 16″ face-to-face, and is fabricated with stainless steel angle, frame ends and internal liner. The fabric belt material is reinforced silicone fabric cloth, which can withstand temperatures up to 550°F. This expansion joint is rated for axial movement of +/- 1″ with a 1/2″ lateral offset. A dye penetrant test on all welds was conducted prior to a quality assurance inspection prior to shipment.
