U.S. Bellows custom designed this universal expansion joint for a crude oil line at an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia. This expansion joint was specially designed with oversized bellows to keep a smooth flow of oil along the line and avoid turbulence. The bellows were fabricated from a 316 stainless steel with all of the other components from carbon steel. The unit is 48″ in diameter and 77″ face-to-face. It is designed for an operating temperature of 150°F at 25 psig, 5.3″ of axial compression, and 2″ of lateral deflection. The unit was hydro-tested at 50 psig prior to shipment.
