Similarities And Differences Between Metal Compensator And Non-metal Compensator

Feb. 02, 2019

With the continuous development and advancement of the industry, the development of metal Bellows Compensator and non-metallic compensators has become more and more stable. And the application is in more and more scope, but there are many different points and common points between the two, each has its own characteristics. Let's take a concrete explanation about what kind of difference exists between them.

Metal compensator and non-metal compensator are both compensator series. The common features of both are as follows: First, it can compensate the expansion and contraction of the pipeline system due to vibration or temperature, so as to protect the pipeline or valve. It is also capable of temperature resistance, pressure resistance and wear resistance. The third is easy to install and use, and the maintenance is convenient, saving time and effort.

This is the common feature of these two products. Because of these advantages, more and more steel mills, power plants, smelters, and cement plants choose to use these two products, and they are consistently praised and promoted.

The difference between metal Pipe Compensators and non-metal compensator:

1, the material is different

Metal compensator, generally made of stainless steel or carbon steel, non-metallic compensator is generally composed of skin and frame, and when the skin is damaged or used for a long time, only the skin can be replaced, reducing the cost.

2, the media is different

Metal compensator, because the material is mostly stainless steel or carbon steel, the medium in the pipeline is water, air, oil, smoke, etc., and the skin of the non-metal compensator can withstand high temperatures, passing medium. It can be hot air, pulverized coal, soot, etc. It can withstand temperature and wear, and when the medium is water or oil, it is generally not necessary to use a non-metallic compensator.
