|Project Summary||Project Information|
For a project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.
The general project is to analyze, design, and fabricate an apparatus for testing one of Garlock’s more expensive products, an expansion joint [EJ]. An EJ is a rubber and fabric component that is bolted between different types of piping connections. The EJ handles expansion and contraction, vibration, and torsional twisting from settling or system changes. It’s cheaper than repiping a system. EJs are custom built in sizes from 2’’ to 130’’ and are exposed to a variety of media, pressure, and temperatures. EJs are often installed in hard to reach locations and forgotten about. A failure often means a critical system goes off line. Garlock would like to provide a solution to its customers to better understand the integrity of any given unit.
