High-Tech Dog Bone Expansion Joints for Power Plant in Mexico
We are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed the design, manufacturing, and delivery of two cutting-edge Dog Bone Expansion Joints for a major power plant project in Mexico.
The Dog Bone Type Expansion Joint serves a critical role as a flexible connector bridging the gap between turbines and condensers within power plants. It is the most prevalent and extensively employed expansion joint for linking turbines to condensers.
This expansion joint primarily serves to absorb and accommodate the differences in thermal expansion between the steam turbine and the condenser, all while exerting minimal forces and moments on the exhaust flange of the turbine. team turbines come in a variety of exhaust configurations such as down exhaust, axial exhaust and top exhaust. Each configuration has unique design and performance requirements for the expansion joint. The expansion joint must perform satisfactory under a wide range of operating conditions to ensure reliable operation of the turbine condenser system.
