Fluid Handling

 

Responsive | Reliable | Ready

We help our customers improve their production processes by providing safe, reliable, and innovative fluid handling products, services, and expertise.


Our fluid handling products and technologies are used to control the flow of fluids in process industries worldwide. We play an integral role in enhancing process efficiency, optimizing energy utilization, and maximizing productivity to positively affect the use and preservation of our earth’s natural resources.

Rotary Joints & Unions

Rotary Joint PT2X
A rotary joint, also called a rotating union or swivel, permits fluid to flow from a stationary supply pipe into and out of rotating equipment. Fluids typically used with rotary joints and rotating unions include steam, water, thermal oil, hydraulic oil, air, and coolant.

Expansion Joints & Flexible Connectors

Unaflex Grouping
Expansion joints provide relief from stresses caused by mechanical and thermal expansion and contraction in pipelines due to varying ambient temperatures, varying temperature of materials handled, and pipeline material composition. Expansion joints mitigate the risk of piping buckling, pulling apart, and causing excess vibration and noise.

Additional Product Lines

Fluid handling offers a full portfolio of products for steam and condensate systems.

Industries

Fluid handling products are used in process-based industries. Our products can be found in any industrial process where fluid is used to cool, heat, or transfer energy and information or where piping expands and contracts.

Expertise

We are fluid handling experts. We have over 90 years of experience in rotary joint sealing technology, fluid behavior in rotating vessels, and controlling processes powered, heated, or cooled with fluid.
