Rotary unions for every need

Rotoflux supplies a range of rotary unions suited to any industry need. They can operate at speeds up to 20 000 rpm, pressures up to 400 bar and temperatures up to 340°C. The high speed range is available in a dry run version and will not fail if the flow of fluid runs dry. It is used extensively in the machine tool industry. Rotary unions function by connecting to an input and securing onto another mechanism while allowing a moving connection. They provide a seal between a stationary supply passage (such as pipe or tubing) and a rotating part (such as a drum, cylinder or spindle) to permit the…
