Five tips for quick installation of expansion joint

Expansion joints are a type of equipment that connects pipes and pumps, valves, etc. These expansion joints are bolted and these bolts make them a whole.There are many types of expansion joints, such as: AF type flange type loose expansion joint, BF type single flange limit expansion joint, B2F type double flange limit expansion joint, BY type gland loose limit extension joint, CF Single flange force transmission joint, C2F double flange force transmission joint, etc.Today, I will explain to you that the quick-fit telescopic expansion joint can be resized according to the actual needs during the installation process. During operation, the expansion joints can deflect axial forces throughout the piping system.In addition, the main materials of the expansion joint include: QT-400 (nodular cast iron), Q235 (carbon steel), HT20 (grey iron), 304L, 316L (stainless steel).

Five tips for quick installation of expansion joint

Number one:Before installation, we need to check the type and specifications of the expansion joint and the pipe preparation. These factors must meet the needs of the design. This inspection step plays an important role in the entire installation of the expansion joint.

Number two:We need to check the factors that may affect the installation speed in advance,these factors include:Expansion joint connection,expansion and contraction quantity And the way to achieve the sealing effect.In the above many factors, the expansion joint connection is particularly important.

Number three:as far as the expansion and contraction quantity,it’s better have adjustment before installation.If the flex street is adjusted before installation, the installation speed will be greatly improved.Otherwise, if the expansion joint is adjusted during welding, it will have a negative impact during welding.

Number four:For the seal, whether it has a good sealing effect can determine the installation of the expansion joint. Many problems may occur during the sealing process. When a leak occurs, the best way is to install it. In this way, time will be greatly shortened.
