MANUFACTURING / PRODUCTION

In the area spreaded over 20,000 sq.ft., the company has built up a modernized workshop and office facilities. The workshop space contains fully integrated manufacturing facility for BELOFLEX Bellows type Expansion Joints. With all manufacturing processes under our direct control, we can ensure our customers to get the optimum quality. We have full range of the latest equipment including Hydro Punch Forming machines, and high quality welding machines for the manufacturing of convolutions, pipe ends, flanges and other components. B. D. Engineers makes extensive use of computer facilities to select the perfect type and profile of the bellows required in its application. The desired profile of the bellows convolutions are produced by Mechanically Rolling or Hydraulically Punch Forming a tube consisting of one or more plies of material to the required wall thickness. After Forming, end connections are welded to the BELOFLEX Bellows Expansion Joints. Various types of restrain devices to control the amount and direction of movement can be fitted when required. In most applications internal sleeves are incorporated to streamline the flow and protect the convolutions.

MATERIAL OF CONSTRUCTION

Bellows Expansion Joints are the most highly stressed parts in a piping system. The essence of bellows is flexibility achieved by the convolution design and elasticity of the material employed in its manufacturing. The bellows convolutions are manufactured from certified high grade chrome / nickel alloy which gives both reliability and versatility in performance. The standard material is

Metallic

  • Major Austenitic Stainless Steel
  • Duplex Steel
  • SS - 304
  • Incoloy 800 / 825 / 800H
  • SS - 304 L
  • Monel 400
  • SS - 310
  • Hastalloy-B
  • SS - 316
  • Hastalloy-C
  • SS - 316L
  • Titanium
  • SS - 321

    Non Metallic

  • Multi Layered Fabric
  • Rubber
  • PTFE / PFA


  • QUALITY CONTROL

    BELOFLEX traditionally puts a high value on its Quality Assurance System with stringent checks at every stage of manufacture to meet the ultimate goal of ZERO REJECTION. Every bellows application has a critical nature, thus BELOFLEX considers that Bellows Expansion Joints should be manufactured to a high standard from top quality materials supplied to rigid specifications. Every material used in the manufacture of bellows convolutions is subjected to welding and forming test prior to release of manufacture. Throughout each stage of manufacture all tests are made to ensure that the requirements of the Quality Assurance Plan are being met with. On completion, the bellows are hydraulically tested. Gas and vacuum tests are included whenever necessary.
