Product Announcement from KADANT
Based on the new RX mechanical seal technology, the high temperature configuration of the RX rotary union is rated up to 500 degrees F and features tapered roller bearings to support large radial and thrust loads. The union also features a bearing isolation barrier in the seal chamber to prevent moisture and contamination from entering the bearing area.
Designed for heavy-duty heat transfer applications, the RX union features the latest technology in mechanical seal design including on-machine seal replacement for reduced downtime and a tungsten carbide counterseat for added toughness. Other features include stainless steel springs located outside the flow area and an integral flange for rigid mounting and quick installation.
In addition to use with thermal oil, the RX rotary union can be used with water and air service as well as intermittent steam service. The RX union is available in sizes from 3/8" to 6" and in single- or dual-flow configurations. The union is rated up to 500 degrees F, 200 psig, and 3,500 RPM.
