What are Fireplace Bellows?
Posted December 29, 2008on:
Bellows is a tool that transfers pressurized air in a certain amount to the spot the bellows is pointed at by pushing the handles together, which forces the air out. To get air into the fireplace bellows the handles are pulled apart. Fireplace bellows like other such devices have an entrance area for the air (inlet) and an exit way (outlet). There are valves that make the air enter and exit correctly. Fireplace bellows are almost like a balloon swelling and deflating when air comes in and goes out. The pleated bellows are the traditional ones that started in Europe. The tradition in Asian countries is box bellows and in archaic Egypt pot bellows.
