How Expansion Joint Expertise Helps Improve Industrial Wastewater System Reliability

Nearly all industries have wastewater treatment plants. These facilities are designed to meet pretreatment requirements imposed by local or state governments. Pretreatment rules were enacted to prevent industrial discharges from affecting or passing through domestic wastewater treatment plants, so industry is seeing upgrades or new builds to comply. Wastewater piping systems are constructed from a Continue reading

Understanding & Proper Installation of Pipe Penetration Seals

Why a Gas and Watertight Seal is Important for Your Operation When designing a pumping system—or refurbishing, reconfiguring, or expanding one—users may be faced with sending a pipe through a wall, floor, tank, or vault. Sealing this pipe-through so that no substance—gas or liquid—leaks is of utmost concern. Not only could the failure to create Continue reading

Top Tips – How to Select the Right Expansion Joints

Expansion joints don’t always get the attention they deserve. They are critical components of piping systems for every industry. These flexible connectors allow for movement within the piping system. They can also minimize vibration and sound. Expansion joint failure can result in process downtime as well as safety or environmental concerns, so ensuring the right Continue reading

Expansion Joints for Fiberglass Reinforced Piping Systems

INTRODUCTION Numerous industries use FRP piping today, including oil and gas, power plants, chemical processing, pulp and paper, and water/wastewater. Fiberglass Reinforced Thermosetting Plastic pipe (FRP) is manufactured with a winding process that combines thermosetting epoxy resins reinforced with continuous glass fibers. The resins provide superior chemical resistance capabilities, while the fiber reinforcement gives the Continue reading

Expansion joints for CCR and ELG Requirements in Coal Fired Power Plants

Federal regulations surrounding coal combustion residuals (CCRs) and effluent limitation guidelines (ELGs) are placing new wastewater treatment requirements on coal-fired power plants. CCR regulations require that plant operators take action to reclaim existing ash ponds while the ELG rules mandate that flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater and bottom ash transport streams are treated to higher Continue reading

Selecting Expansion Joints in CPI Applications

Understanding the factors affecting the selection of expansion joints helps maximize their longevity and minimize process downtime. The following guidelines can help with selecting expansion joints Although sometimes overlooked or treated like an afterthought in process design, expansion joints are critical elements in chemical process industries (CPI) operations for providing flexibility and stress relief to Continue reading

Ask The Expert – How To Protect Your Equipment and Piping Systems With Expansion Joints

Water and wastewater systems rely on complex pumping and pipe systems that can wreak havoc in the event of failure. Since the 1930’s, expansion joints have kept these systems protected from sudden movement related to vibration, pump thrust, earth movement, high or shifting temperatures, and improper anchoring. Originally, these were steel welded and button type Continue reading
