2021.09.15LIST

Megaflexon has successfully manufactured and delivered 6 Single Gimbal Type Metal Expansion Joints, 3 Dual Gimbal Type Metal Expansion Joints, 4 Tied Universal Type Metal Expansion Joints, and a total of 13 units for the Hyundai Chemical HPC Project. 

Tied Universal Type Metal Expansion Joint manufactured this time is 78 inches in diameter and 3800 mmL in length, and is mounted on the turbine unit of a power plant.

For the Bellows, which are the main parts of the Expansion Joint, ASTM B443-N06625 Gr.1 material was used, ASTM A516 Gr 70 for pipe and ASTM A516 Gr 70 for hardware.

The Mammoth Geothermal Complex is a complex of 3 geothermal power stations located at Casa Diablo Hot Springs about 3 miles (4.8 km) east of Mammoth Lakes, California. The complex is owned by ORMAT and operated by its subsidiary Mammoth Pacific.

The complex consists of three binary cycle geothermal power stations, each with a nameplate capacity of 10 MW. Mammoth Pacific 1 (MP1) was commissioned in 1984 and was the first air-cooled geothermal power station in the world. Mammoth Pacific 2 (MPII) and PLES-1 were both commissioned in 1990 and use the same air-cooled technology.
