Rotary unions, also known as hydraulic rotary swivels, rotary swivel joints, and hydraulic swivels, are precision components designed to transfer fluid from a stationary source to a rotating piece of machinery. When this rotary joint has reached the end of its operating life span, where can you turn to replace this vital part of your machinery?
The answer: United Equipment Accessories. At United Equipment Accessories (UEA), we can take your existing rotary union, reengineer the swivel and provide you with a replacement component for your equipment.
A common question is: what is the benefit of a new, replacement swivel instead of a refurbished swivel? A refurbished rotary joint has lived some amount of its life span, reducing the total number of hours that it could operate in the field after the refurbishment process. A replacement rotary union will provide a longer running life than a refurbished rotary manifold.
To start your rotary union replacement, we need information such as port size, operating pressures, operating temperature, mounting arrangements, size restrictions, torquing arrangements, working environment, and application. Our design engineers will use this information to create a solution to replace your rotary swivel joint. This unit will be manufactured in our state-of-the-art CNC machines. All our rotary unions are assembled in a cleanroom environment. Before leaving the cleanroom, a production test is performed on all rotary union ports before being completely sealed.
Whether you are looking for a replacement rotary joint for your construction, forestry, or heavy equipment, UEA can design a custom rotary solution to meet your equipment needs. Contact us today for your replacement rotary union.
