Recently despatched to Singapore for a UK based customer, this 20” Style 20 Carbon Steel Marine Swivel Joint with ANSI 300 RF Flanges is to be installed onto a large scale fluid transfer system.
Supporting the offshore oil & gas and marine industries, these engineered products can be used on fixed platforms, jack-up rigs, drill ships and semi-submersibles. Typically flexible pipe is used to transfer the crude oil, or other media, and can be used in conjunction with hose reel systems, chutes or cantilever A-frame systems. These systems include deployment and recovery of the flexible hose and also provide a means of storage.
Often used in harsh, even Arctic environments, the materials used in the swivel, drybreak and hose will be manufactured to reflect this.
