  • Proper Maintenance of Hydraulic Swivels & Systems

    posted on Thursday, May 17, 2018

    Proper or no maintenance of hydraulic equipment can mean the difference between scrapping a machine at 20,000 hours or more instead of 5,000 hours. And because they often are located deep within the workings of machines, hydraulic swivels (also called rotating joints or rotating manifolds) usually receive little or no maintenance. A well-designed hydraulic swivel should not require much maintenance. However, if the swivel is mounted in a location where it is surrounded by hoses or tubing, short

    posted on Tuesday, October 17, 2017

    The typical configuration of a swivel is a round housing and spool. Hot finished seamless tube is used for the housing and ductile iron round for the spool. The housing material machines well and it's weldable, and the spool material is readily machinable. Finding material that's close to size is usually readily available. This allows the material to be purchased at an affordable cost and minimizes the machining.
