Gas Turbine Expansion Joints
Experience in challenging environments
The combination of thermal growth, high exhaust temperatures and high exhaust velocities make for a challenging environment for gas turbine expansion joints.
Managing the thermal growth on a hot duct application requires effective use of design analysis and practical experience. Additionally, correct selection of belt materials as well as fixing and protection of the internal insulation is critical to avoid premature failures. Finally, our acousticians ensure that potential noise break-out through the expansion joint is properly addressed.
SPL Control engineers have extensive experience in the design and material selections for gas turbine expansion joints. We value the opportunity to assist our clients with the correct selection, location, and design approach for exhaust expansion joints in new or replacement applications.
