What is an Exhaust Bellow?
What does an Exhaust Bellow do?
Pros & Cons
- The overall length are shorter so this is an advantage in tight spaces
- Bellows have a solid inner liner so are more suited for turbo manifold applications and high heat
- Because of the way the bellows are manufactured the inner slip join steps down so they can be around 2-3mm smaller than the inside diameter of the tube size. This can cause flow restrictions in some cases when alot of volume is passing through
- Stainless steel is more prone to cracking so over long periods of time the outer ribs work harden and can lead to cracking issues
- Because of there construction and the material they are made from the exhaust flexi will provide a long term ability of movement without cracking.
- These are longer than exhaust bellows so are not ideal for tight spaces
- Because of the thin interlocking inner liner the exhaust flexi are not recommended for high heat applications
