Description

The rotary C.B. union is a self-contained, self-supporting rotary seal for the leak-proof transfer of fluids such as steam, water, air and oil to and from rotating machine shafts. The type of rotary seal fitted to this model is a Filton® Bellows Seal containing a flexible stainless steel bellows which is self-adjusting, eliminating the maintenance common with conventional packed glands. Rotary sealing is created by relative rotation between extremely flat sealing faces (see item #2 and #4 in diagram above) held in contact by the spring characteristics of the bellows combined with an additional sealing force created by the pressure of the fluid passing through the rotary union. The bearing fitted to the union is a cylindrical carbon combined journal and thrust bearing in which a hard chromed and ground spindle rotates.

 

Variations of the Stationary Adapter End

There are three variations available:

 

1) Type B.E. - Single Flow
A single flow union suitable for transferring fluid in to or out of rotating machines.

 

2) Type S.T. - Double Flow (Stationary Center Tube)
Fitted with an adapter suitable for double flow with a stationary center tube. This gives flow areas through the center tube and annulus. The center tube - provided only if ordered - is fixed to the union end by means of a screw thread (dimension “O”). Flow can pass in through the center tube and return through the annulus or be reversed. For steam applications, the center tube is curved to reach the condensate in the bottom of the cylinder. If the roll neck diameter to length ratio prevents the use of a curved tube, a syphon elbow can be specified instead. See the Accessory Section or contact us for more information about the options available.

 

3) Type R.S. - Double Flow (Rotary Center Tube)
Fitted with an adapter suitable for a rotating center tube which must be located and driven by the machine. The center tube - provided only if ordered - rotates in a bush. Flow can pass in through the center tube with the return through the annulus or be reversed. The center tube “sealing” system allows for a slight internal leakage between the supply and return lines. If these fluids must not mix, alternate designs are available.
