High Quality Rotary Unions

for a wide variety of applications

Often unnoticed but essential in many industries: Rotary Unions. There are many applications that require swivels for example car washes, production facilities, hose reels, cleaning systems, hydraulic systems and many more. The various fields of operation set broad requirements for rotary unions. With different designs, nominal widths and sealing materials Mosmatic covers many applications and industries.

How to choose the correct swivel for your application

Due to the diverse requirements for swivels, the available range on the market is huge and can be overwhelming at first glance. In order to find out what swivel may be suitable for your application, you should make considerations on the following points before purchase:

  • 90° or inline
  • Pressure (max. bar)
  • Mounting-Design
  • RPM (max. RPM)
  • Forces: Axial, radial or both
  • Flow volume (l/min)
  • Connections
  • Flow Medium / pH-value
  • Fluid temperature (°C)
  • Duty cycle (hour/day)

Care

Generally speaking our rotary unions are maintenance free. The bearing compartments are sealed which means that there is no need to regrease the swivel. In order to get the most out of your swivel, there are a few small things to consider. We are happy to give you some handy tips how to keep your swivel going.

Warning system for seals

The weep holes on the side of our swivels are not for greasing but to indicate if the seals inside need to be replaced.

When the rotary union is visibly installed

If you see water constantly coming out of the weep holes, the seals inside need to be replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise the grease will be flushed out of the bearing compartment and the swivel will fail and stop spinning.

Contact your Mosmatic dealer to get the right seal kit for your swivel. You learn how to replace the seals in the video below.

When the rotary union is invisibly installed

The weep holes of our swivel types DXTI, DYT und DYU have a female threat. This allows you to divert the water by using a tube or hose.

Underwater Applications

Our underwater rotary unions are equipped with a special check valve to ensure no outside water can get inside the swivel. This contributes to the longer life of your swivel.

Spare Parts

Seal Kit
The seals build the core of our swivels. They enable the swivel to rotate while being leak-proof.

The swivel has to withstand different variables like pressure, throughput medium and temperature. To get the most of your swivel the seals and O-rings need to be replaced from time to time. This way you protect the bearings and extend the life of your rotary union.

Bearing Kit
The function of the bearings is to absorb axial and radial forces. The bearing compartments are sealed with O-rings to avoid grease from being flushed out.
If you miss to replace the O-rings, the compartment will get flushed and the bearings will run without lubrication. Ultimately this will lead to failure of the swivel.
Besides the seal kit we also offer Bearing Kits for some swivel types.

Repair Kit
The Repair Kit is available for a few of our rotary unions and includes the Seal and Bearing Kit.

How to clamp a swivel

To replace the O-Rings, seals or bearings you need to open up the swivel. It is important to clamp the swivel in the correct manner to avoid damage to the housing, threats and internals. If possible you should use aluminium soft jaws.
