72″ Universal Gimbal and Single Hinged Flanged and Flued Head Expansion Joints

July 11, 2011

72" Universal Gimbal and Single Hinged Flanged and Flued Head Expansion Joints

U.S. Bellows designed and fabricated a 180″ long double gimbal expansion joint with a 90° elbow and flanged and flued head bellows, and a 114″ long single hinged expansion joint with flanged and flued head bellows. After performing a pipe stress analysis on the line, it was determined that spring supports were necessary, so F-Type variable spring supports were also provided for this project and shipped with the expansion joints.

All material in contact with the service fluid is fabricated from 304 H stainless steel and all external hardware is 304 stainless steel. The expansion joint bellows is designed for 5° angular movement and 1100°F at 10 psig. A spot x-ray test, soap and air test, and 100% dye penetrant examination on all welds were performed prior to shipment

Custom Universal Expansion Joint and Duct Work Assembly
This week’s featured product is on a hinged universal expansion joint and duct work assembly custom designed for an exhaust duct application in a power plant in Kenya. The hinge hardware was fabricated from carbon steel, while the rest of the unit was fabricated from 316 stainless steel with Inconel 625 bellows. An F-type variable spring was also provided for this project and will be used to support the center spool between the two elbows. The duct work with expansion joint is 36″ in diameter and the distance between the centerline of the two 90 degree elbows is 240″. It is designed for 20 psig at 115°F and 1/2 degree of angular movement. The entire assembly was 100% dye penetrant tested and a soap and air test was performed prior to shipment.
