A batch or rubber-cord expansion joints complete with flanges by COMPOSIT dispatched to a newly built CCGT unit in Yaroslavl, which is a Russian-Chinese joint venture.
The Huadian-Tenin CHPP was commissioned in June 2017 by co-operative effort of Huadian, a Chinese corporation, and TGK-2, a Russian energy provider. This project aimed at complete elimination of power shortage in the Yaroslavl region.
The plant operates with natural gas, which allows to reach high levels of efficiency at significantly reduction of toxic emissions into the atmosphere. Currently, the CCGT is being driven up to its rated output of 450 MW.
The rubber-cord expansion joints supplied by Kronstadt Engineering Company are designed to be used in the plant's turbine condensate system.
Lens-type expansion joints by COMPOSIT are made of synthetic rubber, which accompanied by cord fabric secures rigidity and guarantees high wear resistance. These expansion joints eliminate any misalliance of pipelines and compensate any undesirable movements due to heat expansion or compression. Metallic flanges are manufactured for each project specifically considering allowable diameters and system pressure levels.
Any further information regarding expansion joints in this or other projects is available from our engineering specialists.
