Expansion Joints for Petroperu Talara Refinery, Peru
Large size single unrestrained MFW Series DN2800 Expansion Joints have been successfully designed, manufactured and tested for Petroperu Talara Refinery in Peru.
These expansion joints are made of one single bellows element with end connections.
Regardless of accessories, such as liners and covers, this model absorbs all the movements in any one length of piping but it is mainly used to absorb axial movements.
It does not restrain pressure thrust so adequate anchors and guides must be provided and they can be used only in piping systems that incorporate correctly designed anchors and pipe alignment guides.
