PFI has the ability to consult with you on your design and manufacture bellows from numerous materials for many different applications and industries. Bellows are machined from solid materials to create a flexible member. Bellows are often used in piping systems as pulse dampeners or covers to protect reciprocating components. Bellows can be constructed of Virgin PTFE, PTFE compounds, UHMW, Polyethylene or several other materials depending on the design specifications and requirements.
Bellows can be used as a component in solenoid valves, sampling valves, lined pipes, and in combination with a variety of seals including stem seals, to name a few applications. Depending on the material choice, bellows can be highly corrosion resistant, making them extremely useful in hazardous and corrosive applications and environments, such as acids, and harsh liquids and media.
