High dust concentration in coal fired duct systems requires an innovative solution to stop the dust ingressing into the expansion joint. The critical problem is temperature variance and gradients. Dust on the steel parts can cause flash and cool spots, leading to shortening the life of the joint. By using site utility air, a sealing cushion of air can be created at the internal edge of the joint, eliminating any dust ingress and maximising life.
