What is a fabric non metallic expansion joint? (textile)
An expansion joint made from textile fibres is a flexible element. It belongs to the category of the non-metallic expansion joints.
Because of the specific composition of the individual layers, fabric expansion joints are not suitable for installation on lines that carry liquids. They are only suitable when fluids are in a gaseous state.
They can withstand extremely high temperatures, even over 1000°C. Contrary to metal and rubber expansion joints, fabric expansion joints are extremely flexible and their rigidity value is unimportant.
A fabric expansion joint is made of one or more layers of different nature, each of which performs a specific task. Some materials are designed to withstand temperature, others are designed to resist corrosion caused by the process fluid, and others retain pressure.
Overlaying and combining of different layers obtains a stratification that has properties suitable for specific project conditions. It is therefore an extremely versatile component.
What is the use of a fabric non metallic expansion joint? (textile)
When properly inserted in a pipe system, the fabric expansion joint distorts and adapts to variations in pipe dimensions caused by thermal expansion.
It can also be used as a connecting element between equipment and a pipe to which it is connected, in order to avoid “rigid interfaces” that are potentially dangerous for the equipment.
We can supply expansion joints for any other industry that works with temperatures over 1400°C and pressures up to 100 kPa”. Supplied open, closed, in bundles, whether circular, rectangu- lar, conical, or virtually any other shape.
BBV Tech uses the very latest design and research technologies in the field of textile expansion joints in order to satisfy the requirements of an ever-increasing number of qualified customers.
BBV Tech guarantees that all the textiles used in the manufacture of the joints are “ecologically sound” and completely free of asbestos.
