Cryogenic Swivel Joints are a very important solution to most hose and articulated pipework assemblies. There purpose is to allow the line to rotate. this is good for two reasons, one it can relieve stress and torsion on hose and two it can give you the necessary angles to achieve what it is you want to do.
When talking about cryogenics the Swivel Joint can be a vital part to the system. Cryogenic are extremely dangerous substances and can cause severe damage to operators or even life in the event of an accident. It is therefore extremely important that the line is kept free from stress and torsion to remove the risk of fractures in hose or pipework.
Both our standard and engineered range can be modified to suit cryogenics. More often than not we supply a small 1/2″ port on the ball race of the Swivel for which can be purged with nitrogen. This stops the Cryogenic Swivel Joints from freezing up and allows them to rotate effectively and smoothly. We then of course supply the Swivels with seals and grease suitable for these conditions.
EWFM are not just limited to Swivels, we supply a vast amount of other equipment for Cryogenics. These include
