The ‘Swivel Union Joints’ also known as “Rotary Swivels” are precision Metallic devices used for the transmission of Semisolid (Cooling Liquids), Liquid (Oils), Gaseous (Steam) under High Pressure or vacuum from a stationary pipe source into a rotating machinery part. Swivel Union is broadly classified into ‘Swivel Male Union’ and ‘Swivel Female Union’.
The Swivel Unions are special mechanical precision components used for transfer of fluids from stationary sources, such as source pipe to end point of the pipe. Swivel Unions are used in many manufacturing units as a coolant, to heat or to pass fluid.
There are some fluids or gas things that can be fed through, such as Water, Air, Coolant Hot steam, Hydraulic, Gases, hot oil, semi-fluids and various types of liquid media or it is also used to keep the vacuum.
The Types of Swivel Unions and the types of things that can be fed through
Single Flow Passage Rotary joints – Water, Air, Coolant.
Dual Flow Passage Rotary Unions – Hydraulic, Steam, Vacuum.
Triple Flow Passage Rotary Unions – Air, Hydraulic, vacuum.
Four Passage Rotary Unions – Hydraulic, Vacuum, Air.
It maintains tight Metal to metal seal under high vacuum and High pressure applications.
No Maintenance required because, No lubrication is required between joints.
Quicker and simpler to install, saves time on pipe fitting.
Fire proof, Leak proof and Pressure protected, No chances of burst, causing fire or other hazards.
1. To transfer Steam and Water.
2. In Pharmaceutical, Drugs and Paints industries.
3. In Beverages and Foodstuff industry.
4. It is Used in Mining and Petroleum Plants.
5. In Gas and chemical transmission.
6. In Aviation, Automobile and Marine Industries.
