Expansion joints are vital components in most energy and industrial plants today. They are installed in air and flue gas duct systems in all power plants, FGD systems, gas turbine systems, diesel engine installations, petrochemical and chemical plants, incinerators, pump systems, cement works, steel works, on and offshore systems, ships and cruise vessels, etc.
