Moulded rubber bellows are typically used in piping systems.
Moulded rubber bellows are used in piping systems. They are often combined with integral metal flanges. The rubber is moulded into shape and normally reinforced with fibres to withstand the system pressures and movement.
Connecting flanges are normally available in accordance with industry standards. The common elastomeric compounds are:
Bespoke hand built joints can also be designed and manufactured to suit your application requirements such as large cooling fan bellows.
James Walker has extensive experience manufacturing custom‑made elastomeric expansion joints for various applications.
Metallic expansion joints are installed in piping systems to absorb differential thermal expansion and vibration.
