We have been continuously adding new Fabric Expansion Joint content to our website. From fabric expansion joint design styles to diagrams and applications, we are creating more and more content in order to answer any technical questions that you may have.

Our most recent addition, the Fabric Expansion Joint Application page, shows you where an expansion joint would be applied within a Fossil Fired Power Plant.

Check out where they fit in between the air heater, scrubber, fans, and more!
