ROTAFLOW’s high pressure 5-port pipeline swivel unit has been designed specifically to assist laying pipes on the seabed as deep as 5km at working pressures to 184MPa.
Mounted on board ship, the swivel feeds fluids to rotating hose reels. The reels then bail out kilometres of high pressure umbilical hose to the sea bed.
Manufactured by Rotaflow FV of the UK, these and various other units are supplied to major industries worldwide, from petrochemical to coal, steel and nuclear.
Aside from relieving torque in hoses and pipework, swivel joints are key elements in loading arms. Various models are available in a wide range of sizes and grades of carbon and stainless steels, plus other more exotic metals and sealing materials.
