At Proflex Hose, we stock a range of hose bellows to fit a variety of requirements. A hose bellows is a mobile or compressible section of hose, often made from a flexible, vibration-absorbing material like rubber or consisting of a concertina-style pipe configuration, which allows some movement within the hose assembly, and often, this bellows is used to negate vibration or prevent it from travelling from one area in the assembly to another.
Hose bellows and bellows assemblies can also be used to absorb noise and exhaust gasses, or to compensate for pipe misalignment by providing a flexible connecting section between pipes. Rubber moulded bellows hose is particularly suitable for this use, thanks to its shape and construction material.
What Types of Bellows are Available at Proflex Hose?
Proflex Hose stock a wide range of hose bellows to suit a variety of tasks. The bellows which we stock can largely be divided into two types – exhaust bellows and moulded rubber bellows hose, which are best suited to different applications.
Exhaust Bellows are hose bellows designed to absorb vibration, noise & exhaust gasses together with small amounts of axial, lateral & angular movements in high temperature, low pressure applications.
Supplied as standard with c/stl or s/stl flanges or they can be custom made from different materials and to specific dimensions especially to suit each application, be it replacement of existing expansion joints or brand new systems. This type of hose bellows is particularly effective as a vibration absorber.
Moulded Rubber Bellows Hose
Moulded Rubber Bellows hose is a type of hose bellows designed to compensate for misalignment, neutralise movement and reduce noise and vibration in pipelines. They effectively dampen the transmission of sound and vibration from plant items in building service installations, and can be used for many applications including water, oils, chemicals, gases and in the food industry depending upon the grade of the rubber used in the rubber bellows hose.
The bellows available from Proflex Hose are easily attached to hose assemblies and other machinery, and are made to last, offering long lifetimes of service at very competitive prices.
