FCCU Expansion Joints for Italian Refinery
MACOGA has been awarded a contract for supplying lined FCCU Expansion Joints for one of the biggest Refineries in Italy.
The FCCU Expansion Joints have been designed as per UOP Specifications and incorporate Inconel 625 LCF 2-ply testable bellows where each ply is designed for the full operating conditions. If a hole or stress crack develops in the inner ply during service, the outer ply takes over without exposing operators to increased risk or creating the need for an unscheduled shutdown.
The ND 1400 Expansion Joint and 5 meters long include RESCO and RESCOBOND Refractory and Abrasion Resistance Lining.
Expansion joints used in FCCU service are highly engineered units and one of the most critical and complex types of expansion joints manufactured. These expansion joints are exposed to high temperatures, high pressures, large movement conditions, and very aggressive media.
MACOGA designs and manufactures FCCU Expansion Joints according to UOP, ExxonMobil, KBR, Lummus, etc. specifications.
