Design Considerations
Media: Internal and External Environment
Temperature: Constant operating and maximum excursion
Pressure: Normal positive or negative
Movements: Axial and lateral, simultaneously or independently
Installation: Existing equipment and duct flanges
Assembly: Factory-assembled or field-spliced
Baffles are usually not necessary with elastomeric expansion joints due to the tube resistance to most abrasive particular matter. However, baffles must be used with fabric composite joints to protect the inner surface form particulates in the gas stream. We can supply baffles fabricated from carbon steel, stainless steel, or other materials as required.
Retaining Rings
Standard construction calls for 2" wide, 3/8" thick bars with slotted holes for easy installation. Material of construction can be carbon steel, corten or stainless steel.
