Neoprene fabric expansion joints were custom-designed for a ventilation fan intake duct in a power plant. They are 42″ in diameter and are 65″ in overall length. They were designed for 1/4″ axial movement, 1/8″ lateral deflection, and a 100″ water column at 200°F. The expansion joints are fabricated with a neoprene reinforced belt with stainless steel clamps, carbon steel spool pipe, and angle flange end. Each joint was 100% dye-penetrant examined prior to shipping.
