Seals – When used as seals or interfaces, bellows and compensators protect reciprocating mechanisms, keeping them free from contamination by their environment.
Connectors – When used as a connector, the prime function is to contain substances passing between fixing points it connects. In this mode, a bellow or flexible connector can also be designed to take up vibration, thermal expansion, and some misalignment in the system.
Beakbane has perfected many alternative manufacturing techniques and can support effective single piece manufacture up to relatively high volumes. We utilise a wide range of materials to produce bellows and flexible connectors that will meet most operational requirements.
Materials include the following:-
- Neoprene Coated Cotton.
- Neoprene Coated Nylon.
- PVC Coated Nylon.
- Silicone Glasscloth.
