Bellows Seal Valves are specialized valves designed to prevent leakage by incorporating a flexible bellows element. The Bellow, made of metal or other materials, provides a barrier against fluid leakage, making these valves ideal for applications requiring zero or low emissions and environmental safety.
Ext. Stem Bellow seal Valve
A Ext. Stem Bellow Seal Globe Valve is a construction that is a kind of Globe / Gate Valve that seals the valve stem components using bellow.
A Bellow is contained within the valve, and the lower end of the stainless-steel / Nickle Alloy Bellow is welded to the stem to prevent the stem from being eroded by system fluid.
The other end is inserted between the valve's body and cover to form a permanent seal. This double seal structure prevents leakage; in the event that the bellow collapse, the stem packaging will prevent further leakage. The bellow are welded to the valve stem to provide steady operation and to eliminate valve stem vibration caused by the valve insert movement.
