10 Mar What are Perkins Bellows?
As we’ve discussed many times before, Perkins are renowned for their diesel engine parts throughout the industry. From actuators to O Rings, Perkins parts provide incredible quality and efficiency across a wide array of areas in the Diesel engine that very few manufacturers match. One often overlooked aspect of the Diesel generator is the exhaust. Exhaust parts are often vital to ensuring your Diesel generator is safe to operate and meets regulations standards. Therefore, it’s vital you trust a quality manufacturer like Perkins. Learn more about just one part of your Diesel generator exhaust system Perkins produces, the bellows, here at PowerMark.
What is a Diesel Generator Bellow?
Diesel generators produce emissions as a byproduct of their power generation process. These are passed through the exhaust system. Typically, a Diesel generator exhaust system will typically feature more flexible parts, such as the exhaust pipe, than you see in the rest of your Diesel generator’s parts.
Flexible parts are more prone to dislodging or sustaining damage from motion. Diesel generators, during their running process, also produce kinetic energy. This kinetic energy can be seen as vibrations. In order to avoid damage to the flexible exhaust system, you need a part that reduces the kinetic energy transferred to the Diesel generator exhaust system, whilst still allowing emissions to reach the exhaust system.
This part is known as a bellow. Bellows are typically produced from steel and feature corrugation. Perkins Bellows are renowned for their quality and shock absorption. PowerMark has a vast array of Perkins Bellows on our site, built for a variety of specifications, regulations and standards.
