MR fluids are widely used in various structures such as controlled dampers, brakes, clutches, etc. Application of these fluids can reduce energy costs and weight as well as increase device operational speed and lifetime. In order to exploit all the qualities of MRS and ERS properties it is necessary to occasionally mix the fluids and monitor them. These systems are still under research and development in laboratories worldwide. This article describes the developed and tested flexible bellow, which can determine whether the MR fluid is under influence of sedimentation and whether it can operate correctly or it is necessary to perform the mixing
