Air Inlet Duct Expansion Joints & Belt Replacement

BADGER’s Air Inlet Duct Expansion Joint & Repair Service reduced future maintenance costs and reduces installation time

air inlet expansion joints and belt replacement

Without a functioning air inlet expansion joint, the vibration from the gas turbine and generator would turn the filter house into a megaphone.  Minimizing vibration-induced noise pollution is the primary function of the air inlet expansion joint, but preventing unfiltered air from entering the turbine inlet vacuum is a key feature that can deteriorate over time.
