Wearflex® Expansion Joints and Bellows

Insulcon - Wearflex® Expansion Joint What are Wearflex® Expansion Joints? (bellows)

Wearflex® expansion joints (bellows) are flexible connections in air, flue gas pipes and duct systems found in all kinds of industries. The main job of expansion joints is to compensate thermal expansion and to absorb vibrations. Our Wearflex® expansion joints are vital components in most of today's energy and industrial plants such as incinerators, cement factories and steelworks, power plants, petrochemical and chemical plants.

Wearflex fabric expansion joints Types of expansion joints

Insulcon, as one of the leading companies, designs, manufactures and installs several types of expansion joints, namely fabric expansion joints (Q-Chem, Q-Flex and Q-Fire) which are resitant up to 1370°C. Next to fabric expansion joints, we offer metal expansion joints and rubber expansion joints. 

What do you avoid with expansion joints?

  • Damages to other processing materials
  • Shutdowns in the production process
  • High volume sounds
  • Prevent leakages
  • Hazards to people and environment

Examples of application areas

Flue gas cleaning, waste heat boilers, heat recovery boils, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), waste incinerators, hot dip galvanizing furnace, gas turbines systems, flue gas desulphurization (FGD) systems, exhaust systems and industrial furnaces.
