Swivel Joints

ROTOFLUID swivel joints are used when there is a need for a movable pipe connection system between two equipment parts. Swivel joints provide reliable and safe operation when transferring the product under extreme application parameters. In addition to loads caused by internal pressure; ROTOFLUID swivel joints absorb external, radial, axial and bending forces. The maximum load of a joint depends on many operational factors.

ROTOFLUID swivel joints are used in ;

*Loading arms
*Flexible piping systems
*Hose reels
*Floating roof drains
*Floating suction systems

Swivel joint systems are composed of combinations of swivel joints and pipes. It is possible to achieve desired motions of two points relative to each other by selection of appropriate swivel joints.

For applications where hoses are not considered suitable, the use of swivel joints and pipes is an ideal alternative solution. Rotary connections are developed and manufactured according to customer defined specifications.
