Stainless steel bellows are actually used in many places, bringing us a lot of convenience. Some consumers also find some problems when using stainless steel bellows, such as water leakage. What should we do if we encounter such problems? First of all, it is important to know what causes the water leakage.

1. Shims

Shims are flat, smooth and free of burrs. Sometimes, there will also be broken marks on the shims, resulting in water leakage. Or the flat pad deforms during installation.

2. Installation

The stainless steel bellows will bend to the ideal state according to the environment during installation. However, it should be noted that the distance between the bending point and the bellows port must be fixed while the port is bending to ensure that the port is flat and not deformed and the end surface is flat to ensure no water leakage after installation. Another point is the number of bends: the thickness of the bellows is relatively thin, and the bellows can be bent many times, but frequent bending will make the bending point of the bellows hot, and it will be broken if it exceeds a certain number of times.

3, stainless steel bellows production process

This kind of stainless steel bellows appears in the production process, and what may appear is the sealing performance of bellows welding, which is not well welded and has gaps. Corrugated pipe joint is not smooth enough, or is a groove, so it will leak during installation.
