Expansion joints are vital components in most ships, from navy warships, cruisers, ferries to luxury yachts and in many marine applications including but not limited to ballast systems, fuel lines, LNG & LPG lines, circulating engine water, pumps, main propulsion engines, scrubbers, exhaust gas system, etc.
Marine conditions require equipment that can withstand vibrations, turbulence, wear and corrosion and therefore this critical environment must be considered when designing and manufacturing Expansion Joints for this application.
