Reliable Bellows and Expansion Joints

Bellows and expansion joints are assemblies that are designed to safely absorb heat-induced expansions and contractions of pipes and tubing systems. Bellows and expansion joints should be designed accurately to make sure that they are able to withstand the stresses and avoid cracks brought about by the continuous change in the temperature of the system.

Expansion joints are used in tubing and piping systems because of one basic scientific principle: Boyle’s Law. When tubing is subjected to high-temperature fluids, pressure also builds up. Expansion joints are needed to bear the extra force that accumulates. Major engineering concepts are involved in the design of expansion joints. Bellows are designed to withstand the high temperatures of large engines with special materials that can act as an intermediate expansion joint.


Quality Bellows and Expansion Joints


When there is a need to compensate for self-vibrations of engines, good exhaust bellows are needed. Bellows also compensate for temperature differences resulting in thermal expansion. Exhaust bellows properly connect exhaust gas pipes to the funnel. Thermal movement should be absorbed by the bellows, especially those that transport high-temperature media such as exhaust gases or steam.


Pipes need room to allow for compression and expansion. Joints, also known as compensators, rectify the temperature and dissipate heat and pressure. Bellows are a good example pipe expansion joints. The ability of expansion joints to expand and contract as climate conditions move from hot to cold helps to ensure that the system remains functional even in extreme weather conditions.


Liners, covers, particulate barriers/purge connectors: these are all the parts needed to create the correct expansion joint for a pipe. Accuracy and precision are always taken into consideration in the design of expansion joints and of all our products. When we do this, we make sure the entire machine and pipe systems work to their maximum efficiency.
