What Are Swivel Joints Used For?
Swivel joints are precision machined components that are used to connect and prevent bends in stationary loading hoses that can reduce flow, tear, or rip, releasing harmful chemicals into the air. Also known as rotating pipe joints, swivel joints that rotate on ball bearings can provide many planes of rotation and stress relief to a product line; whether it is a loading arm, pipe, or hose.
