Bellows

Over the years Beakbane Bellows have established an ever-increasing number of applications throughout industry. Today, they vary from the simplest of applications to the specialised requirements of high technology.

Bellows fall into two broad classes of use:

  • Seals.
  • Connectors.

When used as seals, bellows are required to protect reciprocating mechanisms, keeping them free from contamination by their environment.
