ASME Certified Expansion Joint for Petrochemical Plant in the Middle East

ASME Certified Expansion Joint for Petrochemical Plant in the Middle East

MACOGA boasts unparalleled expertise in the design and manufacture of expansion joints for heat exchanger applications.

With years of experience in the field, we have solidified our position as leaders in engineering solutions for the process industry. Our deep knowledge and experience in this field enable us to offer expansion joints of the highest quality and performance for a wide range of heat exchanger applications.

In heat exchangers, inner tubes and shells frequently do not expand at the same rate due to differences in the materials used, varying temperatures, and other factors. If the heat exchanger is not prepared to control this longitudinal thermal expansion, pressure and dimensional changes in the tubes or shell can cause significant damage to the unit.

On this occasion we have successfully designed and delivery of a high-tech 5-meter diameter expansion joint for a major Petrochemical Plant in the Middle East.

Main features of the Expansion Joint supplied:

  • Type MWA Single Unrestrained – ASME Stamped
  • Size 5050 mm 
  • Bellows SA.240 304H
  • Pipes SA 240 304H
  • Test Pressure 5.65 Barg (82 psi)
  • Design Temperature 635 °C (1175 °F)

This remarkable expansion joint stands as a testament to MACOGA's commitment to innovation and excellence in engineering solutions.
