LBH International has received an order for design and production of specially designed Fabric Expansion Joints to be installed in Kemerköy and Yeniköy Thermal Plant. The expansion joint units are to be installed just after coal mills and are designed to withstand the severe abrasion from the coal dust. The units are protected inside abrasion resistant plates in up to 20mm thickness. The construction is made in such way that the plates are replaceable. The fabric bellows are designed to withstand also failure conditions both in temperature and pressure. As man protection from outside the units are equipped with perforated plates which allows heat to escape.
LBH has worked with GE Power Germany and successfully offered the best solution as well as a full service package for installing and supervision on site, and thereby won the order.
The 64 expansion joints will be installed in different places and have the below working conditions:
Pressure up to 100 Kpa
Temperature up to 400°C (with dust)
DN 900-1450 mm
