Industrial equipment is designed for rigorous work environments so ensuring their protection and longevity is important. This can be easily achieved using industrial equipment covers from Nabell USA Corporation, a leading custom industrial cover and bellows manufacturer in the USA. This post analyzes the reasons for their popularity and what to expect when you order from Nabell.

Why Do Businesses Prefer Using Nabell’s Industrial Equipment Covers?

Industrial equipment covers from Nabell have gained immense popularity in recent years. The following reasons have contributed to their preference among industrial customers.

Certification and Compliances: Industrial equipment covers help improve the quality of moving parts in machines. Hence, they must be designed and manufactured in compliance with industry standards. The manufacturing systems at Nabell meet and exceed the following standards.

  • RoHS
  • COC
  • Fair Conflict Materials
  • UL94 VTM-0 (flame-resistant test)

An industrial equipment cover that meets these standards and regulatory requirements instills confidence in users. These compliant manufacturing practices help the experts at Nabell mitigate the risks and foster a culture of responsibility and accountability. Adherence to these certifications and compliances has helped Nabell to serve clients from segments where safety is paramount.

Industries Served: Industrial equipment covers or industrial bellows are commonly used to protect machinery and equipment in manufacturing settings. They guard against dust, debris, and other contaminants that could compromise the performance of precision machinery. Although these covers perform the same task, their requirements across industries differ. Having spent years working closely with industrial clients, the experts at Nabell understand their requirements and have successfully delivered industrial equipment covers to many satisfied clients. Nabell takes pride in its client base which includes some major manufacturers across the following industries:

  • Refinery and petrochemical
  • Steel, wood, aluminum, and plastics
  • Water and irrigation
  • Pulp & paper
  • Food & beverage
  • Pharmaceutical and medical
  • Energy
  • Automobile & construction machinery
  • Aerospace and marine
  • Housing equipment
  • Salt and mineral mining
  • Semiconductor and IT

Protection Offered: The experts at Nabell USA Corporation protect the equipment and machines from the following:

  • Weld Splatter/Sparks: In welding conditions, industrial bellows can be quite helpful in shielding machinery and equipment from weld splatter. Particles of molten metal released during the welding process are known as “weld splatter,” and they can harm adjacent surfaces and components. Industrial equipment covers from Nabell help lessen the possibility of weld splatter reaching and affecting the surfaces and components.
  • Water/Moisture: Nabell creates industrial bellows using materials that are waterproof or water-resistant, with a tight fit to reduce gaps and openings. This protects the moisture from affecting the components or parts. In this manner, the product’s lifespan is improved.
  • Grinding and Swarf: At Nabell, the experts design industrial bellows with sealed connections and seams to reduce the number of entrance spots where swarf and grinding particles can enter the system. This sealed construction helps create a protective barrier that prevents contaminants from reaching critical components.
  • Salt Water or Sea Spray: Salt water and sea sprays can cause corrosion, deterioration, and a reduction in the lifespan of equipment. Nabell develops industrial equipment covers that can withstand these corrosive elements when used near the sea or other outdoor environments.
  • Hot chips: Nabell has successfully designed bellows using heat-resistant materials that can withstand elevated temperatures associated with hot chips. This serves as the best method to shield machinery from the heat and abrasion that comes from hot chips.

Base Materials Used for Making Bellows: The experts at Nabell have developed extensive knowledge and understanding of various materials. They regularly work with the following materials.

  • Aluminized Kevlar: Nabell provides bellows made of Kevlar fabric with aluminum coating on the side. These bellows can withstand the contact heat up to 200° C (390° F) and radiant heat up to 900° C (1650° F) and are also moisture resistant.
  • Polyurethane: These bellows are used to protect the machine parts from dust, dirt, correct axial shifts, and absorb vibrations. Polyurethane bellows have high tear resistance compared to many plastic and rubber bellows.
  • Neoprene Coated Nylon: The bellows from this material offer excellent resistance against cold oils, water, aging, and chemicals. It can resist weathering, sunlight, and offers excellent flame resistance. The flammability of neoprene-coated nylon starts to weaken at 180-200 ° C. It offers good elasticity.
  • Polyurethane Coated Polyester: This material features a flame-retardant coating on both sides and is treated with a fluorocarbon water repellent. These properties make the bellow made of the material popular with polyurethane coated polyester popular in food and abrasive conditions.
  • Silicone Fiberglass: This material assures excellent weather, ozone, solvents, and temperature resistance. It can withstand contact heat up to 800° C (1470° F) and radiant heat up to 700° C (1290° F). This material also comes with silicone coating on one or two sides.
  • Polyurethane coated Nylon: The PU coating on nylon makes it water resistant, lightweight, flexible, and fire-retardant. It makes them humidity and abrasion resistant, too. The experts at Nabell regularly develop bellows using this material for their clients in the medical industry.
  • Pre-Oxidized Kevlar: This is a non-woven material with excellent non-flammable properties. This property makes it a suitable material for making bellows for applications involving high temperatures.
  • Polyurethane Coated Nomex: The Nomex material possesses flame resistant properties and excellent thermal and physical properties. Polyurethane coating on this material helps improve its thermal properties for better. The experts at Nabell work regularly to develop industrial equipment covers for industrial and military applications.

Customization Options: In addition to the materials, the experts at Nabell also offer customization in various areas, such as construction methods, orientation, mounting, and so on.

  • Construction Method: The bellows can be designed with any of the following techniques:
    • RF Heat/Sealed
    • Sewn
    • Folded
    • Molded
  • Orientation: The industrial equipment covers can be designed for horizontal, vertical, and cross rail orientation.
  • Mounting: They can be developed for specific mounting applications using flanges, hooks and loops, and holes.

The above-mentioned features make the equipment covers or bellows popular among industrial customers. Feel free to contact Nabell to discuss your requirements for industrial equipment covers and they will be happy to serve you.
