KADANT - Solutions for Rotary Joint Misalignment

The greatest cause of pre-mature carbon seal ring failure is misalignment of the rotary joint or union. This is evident when the rotary joint wobbles during operation. When such a wobble takes place, the carbon seal ring (the internal sealing surface) is pinched against the l.D. of the joint housing and unusual wear or breakage may follow. (read more)
