Rubber Bellows, also called Rubber Expansion Joints, Rubber Compensators and Rubber Bellows Pipe, serve as flexible components in mechanical movement of pipework (including axial, lateral or angular directions), which can minimize the transmission of noise, vibration and shock. Rubber Bellows also known as anti-vibration mounting and shock mounting.
