Hello, I am trying to understand if the expansion joint for a new heat exchanger is being installed in the right location. I've attached a picture showing two supports that will be connected to the green structure above by hanger rods. The expansion joint on the shell of the exchanger is between the support and the nozzle on the column. As the equipment gets hot, would the expansion joint interfere with the support rods as shown in the picture? I am worried about the shell elongating and the support rods working in compression against the metal growth as equipment gets hot. I am not sure I am thinking this through correctly.
