, Bredan UM-Types metal expansion joints are designed for diesel and gas engines to absorb vibrations, or axial, lateral and angular movements.
UM-Types are placed on the engine before the turbo charger where high temperatures, vibrations and pressure impulses occur. The expansion joint provides superior flexibility and is corrosion resistant in aggressive exhaust gas applications.
Bredan metal expansion joints for engines are installed in turbocharger exhaust inlets, turbocharger air outlets, exhaust receivers, turbocharger bypass, single pipe or pulse, exhaust manifolds, engine exhaust lines, vehicle exhaust lines and generator set exhaust lines.
The expansion joints are designed with fixed or swivel flanges, pipe weld ends, ‘V’ flanges or other flange constructions made of stainless/ carbon steel or other alloy materials. Sleeves are recommended at high temperatures and flow velocities to protect the bellows from the impact of particles.
UM-Types metal expansion joints can be designed with service temperature up to 800ºC and/or pressure up to 12 Barg.
The bellows form the flexible part of the expansion joints and feature a multi-layer construction with thin layers of heat resistant stainless steel. Bellows materials include austenitic steel, incoloys, inconels, hastelloys, titanium and other formable materials.
