It is designed to perform under high-pressure, high-speed, and high-vibration conditions. Its convex seal design delivers up to 20% more combined pressure and velocity (PV) capability and up to 15% more seal ring wear life than an equivalent ELS rotary joint in steam applications. Its increased carbon guide separation and contact surfaces ensure greater horizontal pipe stability and longer life. The ELSX rotary joint enables faster runnability and increased up-time. Sizes are available from 2” to 3 1/2”. The rotary joint is rated up to 500°F (260° C), 300 psig (20 bar), and 300 rpm for steam. It is rated up to 650°F (343°C), 150 psig (20 bar), and 300 rpm for thermal oil.
