Bellows Vibration Dampening System

The unique elastomeric intra-ply of our M-E-M Bellows® dampens vibration at the point of potential damage–the bellows. In addition, the two metallic plies are constructed from INCONEL 625CF®–the most fatigue-resistant material. These synergistic benefits dramatically extend the service life of the expansion joint where vibration is present. A field test during operation of an M-E-M Bellows® installed in a steel mill revealed a reduction in vibration transmission of 75 percent to 95 percent.
