Gravity is the key supplier of Expansion stainless steel bellows in sizes ranging from 2″ to 70″ NB for various applications. Our SS bellows can be customized with a variety of flanges and mounting connections, pipe ends, tie rods, and other features to meet the customer’s needs.
Our design experience, TIG welding, and machining capabilities enable us to address industry-specific requirements.
Stainless steel in grades AISI, 304, 321 and 316 is the standard material used, and it varies according to the working temperature and environment.
Expansion Stainless Steel (SS) Bellows: The unique specifications and uses:
Stainless Steel Bellows are pressure barrier and seal made entirely of Stainless Steel material that flexes in one or more directions.
One or more convolutions formed is determined by its stress at the optimum working pressure, temperature, and axial and lateral deflection.
A Bellow must be operated well within the maximum design parameters for deflection and pressure to have a long life.
We can design and produce specialised bellows for specific purposes in addition to our normal range.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are Expansion Bellows?
Expansion bellows which are made of various materials such as stainless steel, nickel alloys and other metal alloys that are used to control the thermal expansion due to overheat in the piping systems. These expansion bellows absorb the pipe motions and vibrations thereby keeping your pipes and exhaust system safe and efficient.
What is the material used in Expansion Bellows?
Stainless steel is the most commonly used material in expansion bellows as they offer heat resistance even at blazing temperature. They have anti-corrosive and ant-oxidation properties, high endurance and strength for high temperature absorption which is essential in the piping systems.
In addition, there are other materials for bellows expansion joints like
- Copper Alloys
- Cobalt Alloy
- Nickel Alloy
Are the Stainless Steel Expansion Bellows and Expansion Joints approved by any international or national standards?
The stainless steel expansion bellows and stainless steel expansion joints are approved by prestigious national and international authorities like
- American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)
- Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS), FDA & ACS.
- Lloyds Register of Shipping
- Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
What is the use of Stainless Steel Expansion Bellows?
There are various movement that are caused in the piping systems which results due to high temperature.
It prevents the following movement:
As the bellow compressed, the axial movement is evident, and it is a typical movement that occurs parrel to the centre line of the bellow.
Any movement that is perpendicular to the axis of the bellow is the lateral movement and bellows does its best to prevent the deflection caused in the pipe.
Any movement which results in the rotation of the bellows and at times bending as well. The bellow can be useful with its angular motion.
What is the thickness of expansion bellows?
The thickness is usually 3.2 mm or 0.125 inches and more. They come in single convolution with multiple plys and it comes in both Lens model and Flanged model
What is bellow expansion joint?
Bellow expansion joints are a complete unit comprising of expansion bellows, external fittings and liners. They are used in pipes which are installed in oil & gas, marine, construction and other general industries where the pipes exhibit blazing heat due to its ongoing operations. These pipes tend to get create catastrophic consequences due to high pressure and soaring temperature readings.
What is the difference between an expansion joint and an expansion bellow?
A complete unit which has a expansion bellow and end fitting is called a expansion joint. The expansion joints can be customized with the size, liners, outer covers, thickness depending on your requirement.
Bellows is the material with which an expansion joint is completed, and it expands to adjust and suit the temperature fluctuations.
What is the price of the Expansion Joint and Expansion Bellow?
The pricing depends on what size, ply and fittings you need.
