Special Joints

  • Pressure balanced flexible joints; configured to absorb system movements without imparting end loads from internal pressure.
  • Externally pressurised bellows; for applications where lateral movement must be accommodated in a rigid duct.
  • Build tolerance compensators; adjustable to compensate for negative or positive tolerance accumulation during final duct assembly into the aircraft.
  • Pylon bellows and flexible ducts for high temperature bleed air between engine and pre-cooler.
  • Rectangular bellows; providing long life reliability for APU air intakes.
  • Braided bellows; low mass, confined envelope, joints for bleed air applications in power plant and airframe.
  • Engine seal bellows; reliable and effective seals for aircraft power plant.
