Bellows are typically used to protect actuating or ball screws, drive shafts and cylinder rods.
On hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder rods they offer protection from contaminate ingression, preventing the rod from scoring and extending the seal life of the cylinder.
Controlling fine or airborne ingression is particularly important on hydraulic cylinders, as it helps to maintain system fluid cleanliness and extend filter element life.
Our bellows are typically circular but can be oval, square or rectangular to match your particular requirement or available space.
They can be mounted vertically or horizontally and fixed in a variety of ways including end collar, end flange – round or square, collar with a flange or blank end plates.
Sewn bellows can be split when it is not possible to dismantle equipment.
