Step Bellows

Seamless Step bellows are for the flexible connection of mixers, feeders or vessels on weighing and loading cells to supply lines, drain pipes or other forms of air transport or powder transport with two different dimensions of tubing. Flexible connectors with two different diameters are more flexible than straight cylindrical sleeves. This makes them ideal for weighing or dosing equipment.

Step bellows and conical reducers are available in several materials, such as; Silicone, Polyurethane and even flexible PVC. Conical- and Step Bellows are now available in many shapes and sizes. These bellows have no seams, which makes them more hygienic. The bellows can be designed as offset if the pipes are not aligned.
