DEKOMTE have over 40 years experience in supplying bespoke and high quality expansion joint solutions for the power industry. In a reflection of its core values and foundation 40 years ago, the company recognises its unique ability to custom build expansion joint solutions which integrate the membrane into a system giving a durable and reliable operation for the longest time possible. Many companies focus on cost reduction of product, rather than value optimisation of the system over its lifetime. Maintenance costs are considerable on plant, even more so if they are forced by reliability issues. Reduced maintenance change by routine inspection and longer life cycles are key. It is also important to consider the running regimes of most thermal generation on the UK grid, as it looks to provide peaking, balancing and intermittent power; resulting in higher cycling demand and stress to the rotating and static heat critical equipment.
In this technical webinar, DEKOMTE will touch on some critical aspects of expansion joint design, materials and solutions, with the goal of giving pointers to technicians, designers and specifiers in the understanding of weaknesses of the expansion joints in the ducting and piping systems.
The presentation will cover:
- A focus on inspection and specification starts the session, ensuring that the solutions considered are led by engineering rather than purely economy product.
- Review of materials for membranes and outer covers, with the technical difference and advantages by application
- Case studies relating to key applications in thermal, gas and waste to energy plants
- A follow on Q&A session will be an open forum to share some questions, experience or concerns on how products can be optimised to the maintenance concerns
