Fabric Cloth Expansion Joints



Fabric Cloth expansion joints are often used in ducts which carry hot gases at low pressures. The major design parameters are the temperatures and flow rates of the gases and the amount and abrasiveness of solids suspended in the gases. Layers of different fabrics insulation can be combined to accommodate the temperatures and pressure in the system. The fabric belt may need to be replaced periodically.Fabric Expansion Joints are non-metallic duct expansion joints that provide stress relief for piping and ducting systems by absorbing thermal growth and shock, isolating mechanical vibration, and allowing for misalignments.Fabric expansion joints are precision engineered specifically for your application. duct expansion joints are custom engineered to handle low pressure (±3 psig) applications with temperatures ranging from -100°F to more than 2000°F.Service Features of Fabric Expansion JointsAbsorb axial, transverse and torsional movementsCorrosion and chemical resistanceNegligible spring rates and loadsEasily repairable and installableHigh cycle lifeUnique application solutionsVibration dampening and sound attenuationMore movement in shorter face-to-faceLess force to flex than metal expansion jointsExcellent corrosion and chemical resistanceTemperature capability range (-110°F to more than 2,000°F)Lower shipping and installation costsVariety of flexible belt materials available: Single-layer and composite beltsElastomers have excellent abrasion resistanceCustom designed for each specific application
