AIR, FUMES AND/OR GASES
Fabric expansion joints are applied in ducts transporting air, fumes and gases, even if they are containing solid parts. They are made out of one or more layers of “technical” fabrics and used in installations like thermal power plants, waste incineration, ovens in general, industrial boilers, cement plants, ventilation, etc. Of course, the list is not restrictive.
Fabric expansion joints are able to resist to temperatures up to 1200°C (2190 °F) and particularly aggressive fluids.
Per definition, fabric is particularly flexible and the expansion joint will be made out of more or less layers regarding to the applications. Each layer has its own role to play. They are always “tailor made” items and therefore can be adapted to almost any situation.
