Rotating Unions For Water Applications

Product Announcement from KADANT


Rotating Unions For Water Applications-Image

Kadant Johnson's line of rotary unions incorporates the latest technology in mechanical seal design for water and thermal oil service. The RX rotating union connects stationary piping to a rotating device. The high thrust load capability and carbon-to-silicon (or Tungsten) carbide seal package makes the RX run longer and with less maintenance requirements that other ball bearing designs. The RX features a barrier in the seal chamber to extend bearing life and a rotor and assembly plate made of stainless steel. The design also allows for on-machine seal replacement for reduced downtime.

Ranging in sizes 3/8" to 6", the RX is available in single- or dual-flow configurations. The union is rated up to 500 degrees F, 200 psig, and 3,500 RPM.
