Product Announcement from KADANT
The self-supported SX rotary union provides a positive seal between stationary piping and a rotating cylinder and is designed for steam and thermal oil applications. The SX incorporates two internal carbon-graphite bearings that permit self-alignment and long operating life – even on cylinders that are not concentric. Using new sealing technologies, the SX union has extended seal life and increased reliability along with application flexibility.
The convex seal ring and optimized seal diameter provide extended seal life and reduced maintenance for the SX union. The concept of applying different seal geometries to different media (steam, water, and oil) gives the SX union a strong point of differentiation as well as a marked improvement in performance.
The SX rotary union line is available in sizes 3/4" to 3" and can be used in single and dual flow applications. The union is rated up to 650F, 300 psig, and 55 RPM.
