KVS expansion joints and assembly kits and are specifically designed to be direct replacements for Ingersoll Rand (IR) exhaust expansion joints. These expansion joints are drop-in replacements for OEM part numbers 1R20959B, 1R20959D, and are designed to fit seamlessly into the IR exhaust system.

Bellows Systems manufactures direct replacement for IR exhaust expansion joints, drop in-liner and gaskets for OEM parts numbers,

  • Expansion Joints – 1R20959B,1R20959D
  • Sleeve – 1W40171
  • Gaskets – 1W47349, 1W40030

Our premium KVS expansion joints offer dual floating flanges with formed Vanstone’s and significant improvement in bellows cycle life compared to the OEM parts.

In addition to the KVS expansion joints, we also manufactured complete exhaust manifold kits for KVS engines. The drop-in liners and gaskets were made from high temperature corrosion resistant austenitic stainless steels and are designed to provide superior performance and reliability.

At Bellows Systems, we understand the importance of keeping your equipment running reliably, which is why we offer premium replacement parts that are designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications. Our KVS expansion joints are built to last and are an ideal choice for reliable operations.

Exhaust manifold for cooper bessmer z-350

Exhaust Manifold for Cooper Bessemer Z-330

40 Inch ID Exhaust Manifold for Cooper Bessemer Z-330

Bellows Systems recently shipped another set of Exhaust Manifold sections for Z-330 engine. Z-330 is the largest of the Copper Bessemer 2 stroke Integral Compressor Engines. The Z-330 exhaust manifold has 40inch ID dry manifold. 

Exhaust Manifold for Cooper Bessemer Z-330

The OEM sectioned manifolds for Z330, W330 and V250 engines have several problems that have been observed during continuous service. These issues are discussed in detail BSI service bulletin (SB-100) first issued in July 1983. These include,

Inner shell crack on an OEM Z330 manifold common section.
  • The 40in tube cracks around the junction of the cylinder exhaust chute.
  • The exhaust chute from the base flange to the inner shell/tube cracks.
  • The removable insulation blanket deteriorates over time.

BSI dry manifolds for Z330 have numerous improvements over the OEM units. These include,

  • The 40” inner shell construction using thicker (3/8”) wall plate.
  • The  cylinder chute to inner shell/tube weld is CJP (100% penetration) and back welded on the inside.
  • 3/4” thk. stainless steel rod stiffeners
  • The outside insulation jacket includes 2” thick ceramic fiber  insulation.
  • Fiber glass cloth covered insulation blankets for the expansion joint and bolt gap. Both of which are covered under metal insulation cover.

All structural problems encountered in the OEM manifold are addressed

Bellows Systems also offers conversion from 1 piece or 2-piece manifold to fully sectional dry manifolds.

Bellows Systems continues to innovate and provide superior Exhaust System products for the Natural Gas Compression Industry. We manufacture exhaust manifolds and support all major legacy integral gas compressor engines.

Dual Expansion joints

Exhaust Bellows : Dual Expansion Joint for 825 SGTB Superior Engine

18” Dual Expansion Joint for a 16 cylinder White Superior 825 SGTB Engine

Bellows Systems has been manufacturing exhaust manifolds and exhaust bellows and expansion joints for Cooper-White Superior engines for over 40 years. Our exhaust manifold products cover the entire range of superior engines and include both,

  • Water jacketed (Wet) Manifolds
  • Insulated (Dry) Manifolds

    Our products with robust design have been in maintenance-free service for over two decades. As an example, the wet manifold designs for G825 series engines incorporate 4 ply nickel alloy bellows with liners on the inner jacket. This ensures the expansion joints last the life of the manifold.
