SEB - Single Expansion Bellows

A basic, unrestrained expansion bellows. This assembly type allows some flexibility in all directions.

  • Applications: Air ducts, exhaust pipes, any application where thrust is restrained by the pipeline
  • Materials: Austenitic Stainless Steels, 600 and 800 Series Nickel Alloys, Hastalloy C-276, Nickel 200 and 201
  • Nominal Pipe Size Range: 40-1350nb

UEB - Universal Expansion Bellows

An unrestrained ‘double bellows’ assembly, that allows lots of flexibility all directions.

  • Applications: Air ducts, exhaust pipes, any application where thrust is restrained by the pipeline
  • Materials: Austenitic Stainless Steels, 600 and 800 Series Nickel Alloys, Hastalloy C-276, Nickel 200 and 201
  • Nominal Pipe Size Range: 40-1350nb

UEB3 - Triple Expansion Bellows

A highly flexible bellows assembly allowing extremely large offsets for low pressure applications.

  • Applications: Air ducts, exhaust pipes, any application where thrust is restrained by the pipeline
  • Materials: Austenitic Stainless Steels, 600 and 800 Series Nickel Alloys, Hastalloy C-276, Nickel 200 and 201
  • Nominal Pipe Size Range: 40-1350nb

TEB - Tied Expansion Bellows

A basic restrained expansion bellows allowing some lateral flexibility along with axial flexibility in compression only.

  • Applications: Pump connections, water pipes, steam pipes
  • Materials: Austenitic Stainless Steels, 600 and 800 Series Nickel Alloys, Hastalloy C-276, Nickel 200 and 201
  • Nominal Pipe Size Range: 40-1200nb

TUEB - Tied Universal Expansion Bellows

A restrained, universal bellows assembly, allowing lots of lateral flexibility.

  • Applications: Steam, process and water pipes
