and you know that metal bellows in India are famous and the bellow manufacturers in India while
designing bellows for you, they design it with ultimate care and they ensure that you get a good product

article, let us see some guidelines to avoid any damages to your metal bellows. Damage in metal bellows
can create many panics and also it affects the plant reliability group. There are some common cause for
the bellows to get damage and some of the common causes of damage to metal bellows are due to arc
strikes, wrenches and hammers dropped from the deck above

Bellows material are generally thin and it can dent easily so there are some protective covers available
which are meant to prevent such damage, but for many flanged designs, they must be removed to install
bolts - thus the occasional wrench slip dent. In general most of the people says that shift is the damage for
this problem. Shallow dents in any aspects do not cause a significant enough reduction in the bellows life
cycle to require replacements and don't accept them on a new part from a supplier, but live with them if
they occur in the field. Sharp dents will reduce the cycle life and remember that the sharper the dent,
sooner the fatigue crack will form as the bellows flexes. This could quickly lead to a failure of the
bellows, so you need to be very careful to avoid this kind of damage.


Scratches and arc-strikes is the other reason for the bellows to get damage and remember that as long as a
scratch or arc strike does not remove, more than 10% of the metal bellows or expansion joints material
thickness can just sand and buff it out. It may even be little more and it depends on the scratches so if you
can, catch your fingernail in a scratch and it should be sanded out. And sure, the bellow manufacturers in
India will provide you good services by performing an LP exam after the repair and it is sure that there
won't be any cracks further and you can’t even feel the identification of previous cracks. If you select a
proper bellows in India, it is damn sure that you don’t even need to spend some time on those repairs, but
it purely depends upon the bellow manufacturers in India you select.


Don’t ever be panic, when if any wrenches get falls on your bellows, there are some manufacturers who
can make them into a good one with ease and without any marks so that you can use the bellows for long
time. Select the best bellow manufacturers and enjoy your work without any joints damage.
