What are Rubber Expansion Bellows?
Rubber Expansion Bellows are an assembly which are used primarily in piping applications to compensate for thermal expansion and contraction, reduce noise and vibration produced by the rotating element as well as relieve pipe stress during operation.
A Rubber expansion bellows consists of a specific number of convolutions, with the shape of the convolution designed to withstand the internal pressures of the pipe, but flexible enough to undergo axial, lateral, and angular movements.
What are the factors affecting the design of a Rubber Expansion Bellow?
A number of factors need to considered while designing a rubber expansion bellow. These include the dimensions and flowing medium of the pipeline along with the temperature and pressure rating required for the expansion bellow. Other factors are the movement capability required as well as material and drilling standard of the end flanges.
