What are elastomeric bellows?

The primary component in this seal category is a large, elastomer bellows. This is usually visible, but on some seals it is encased in various types of metalwork. Elastomeric bellows seals are designed so that all rotary components are contained with no loose parts that could potentially get damaged during fitting. All elastomeric bellows seals feature static sealing on the shaft that cannot cause shaft wear or fretting.
