Swivel joints & rotary joints
Swivel joints are rotary units built in ball races. Therefore, they can be used anywhere to transport fluid or gaseous media between two relatively movable points. Our swivel joints have a turning capacity of up to 360°.
The swivel joints are made of the materials 1.7225 (42CrMo4), 1.0570 (ST52-3) and 1.4571 (X6CrNiMoTi 17-12) as standard. They are produced internally, and they are available in nominal diameters from ND08 to ND1200. Connections used for swivel joint heads which are made of carbon steel are normally made of the materials ST35.8 or C22.8.
Our rotary joints are compatible with the entire product line in the area of continuous casting technology. The rollers of the continuous casting segments are supplied with cooling water via rotary joints. High precision manufacture from high quality materials, careful installation and seal inspection guarantee faultless functioning.
