U.S. Bellows custom designed this tied universal expansion joint with floating flanges for a sulphur line application at a chemical facility in British Columbia, Canada. The expansion joint is 48″ in diameter and 72-1/2″ in length. The bellows is fabricated from 304 wetted stainless steel and the flanges and hardware from carbon steel. It is designed for an operating pressure of 10 pisg at 600°F with 1.8″ of axial compression. The unit was 100% dye- penetrant and pressure tested prior to shipment.
