Rubber Bellows Information
Harman Corporation produces rubber bellows to protect against dust, moisture, oils, and chemicals, among many other contaminants. A rubber bellow is a deformable container designed to perform a range of motion. If you've ever driven a standard transmission car, you've seen a rubber bellow that protects the stick-shift from the elements.
Highly flexible, rubber bellows act as extension joints of rotating gears like pumps. Because rubber bellows are flexible, they are often use to complete mis-aligned installation of different parts.
Outside of your car, rubber bellows are used in fluid filling systems, chemical plants, and adjustments in duct lines.
Rubber bellows come in many shapes, from round to rectangular, depending on the application. Depending on the shape, rubber bellows have an amazing range of uses:
- Absorb vibration and shock
- Reduce noise
- Prevent contamination
