Rotary Unions | Swivel Joints

Steam, Water, Air, Hydraulic, Hot oil, Sour Gas, Coolant, MQL Media

Rotary joints are used to transfer media from a stationary source to rotating machinery. Applications include the transfer of steam, water, hydraulic fluid, thermal oil, glycol, coolant, and air. LPR’s rotary unions are used for various industries such as oil & gas, chemical, paper, agriculture, automotive, machine tool, rubber & plastic, food, tire, and renewable energy.

 

Rotary unions range from 1/8’’ to large high performance models with silicon-carbide, spherical, or mechanical sealing options available.

 

Swivel joints for a broad range of uses in the shipbuilding, marine, chemical, petroleum, refining, mining, distilling, brewing, ink and paint industries. We offer various types of seals, including bellows mechanical sealsspherical o-ringsflanges, and balanced sealing options.

 

Our rotary unions and swivel joints meet the highest demands of our clients and industry standards such as ABS, DNV, DNV welding standards and DHV high pressure. LPR Global’s custom designed rotary and swivel joints are commonly used in renewable energy projects for heat generation and energy storage projects.

Rotary Unions and Swivel Joints | Fixed, Stationary Source

Rotary unions are used to transfer media from a stationary source to rotating machinery. Swivel joints are used for connecting fixed pipes with rotating pipes, fixed pipes with linear action pipes, and linear action pipes with rotating pipes. Typical transfer media for rotary unions and swivel joints include water, air, hydraulic oil, steam, hot oil, sour gas, coolant, and MQL.

 

LPR Global’s rotary unions and swivel joints are produced in South Korea at an ISO9001 certified facility. Joints are designed to meet ABS, DNV, DHV high pressure, and DNV welding standards.

 

The list of clients for rotary and swivel joints includes Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, Samsung Heavy Industries, Hyundai Heavy Industries, POSCO Steel, NEXTEEL, DSME, TSC Group, LG, NEXEN Tire, and KIA Motors.

Rotary Unions Overview

Custom and standard rotary couplings are used to transfer liquids, air, and gases while rotating or swiveling from a stationary source to and from rotating machinery. Whether you require a single passage or a multiple passage rotary joint, we are able to supply standard and custom-made rotary unions for your specific application.

 

The advantage of a multiple port rotary union is having an option to transfer more than one type of fluid medium through a single rotary coupling.

 

Some of the applications that we cover are rotary unions for tooling machines, automotive jigs, industrial machinery, and industrial plants.

 

Sealing options include silicon-carbide, spherical, mechanical, and balanced sealing options. Using a balanced seal guarantees low friction during high speed rotation and high pressure operations which makes this type of seal ideal for offshore, chemical, and marine applications.

 

We supply a wide series of rotary joints specifically designed for high speed, high pressure, and high or low temperature operations. Customized extra high pressure models for hydraulic expanding shaft rotary joints and high pressure rotary unions for pressures over 15,000 PSI are also available.

Swivel Joints | Industrial Grade Pressure, Media

Swivel joints are used to connect fixed or stationary parts to other rotating parts or angled hoses. We offer 10 distinct series of swivel joints designed for various media, pressure, and industries ranging from chemical, food, wastewater treatmentoffshore, marine to general metal.
