A rotary union is a tool that helps machines & equipment’s in rotating the united parts.  This device provides a seal between a stationary in supply passage to ease the flow of a fluid in and out of the rotating part. Various heat transfer fluid and control media, such as steam, water, thermal oil, hydraulic fluid, and coolants, are commonly used for rotary joints and rotating unions.

A rotary union is also known as a rotating union, rotary valve, swivel union, rotorseal, rotary couplings, rotary joint, rotating joints, hydraulic coupling, pneumatic rotary union and through bore rota union. It  comes in a variety of designs and configurations. In fact, these unions can be customized  on the basis of customer requirement & application. The customization & creation of rotary unions consists of four basic parts: the housing, one or more bearings, the shaft, and one or more seals. The materials having properties like chemical compatibility & leakage resistance are utilized to create these unions.

Rotating components like robot arms, winders, spools, spindles and rotary tables are used in generating motion application. While using the rotary union in equipments the production of rotary motion is easy, however transfer of air or liquids from a stationary supply to a rotating part for cooling, heating, lubrication becomes quite difficult. It functions by connecting a stationary input (supply) to a rotating part, allowing a moving connection to be preserved and permitting the flow of media (liquids, solids and gases).

The rotary union is used in a various of industries, including automotive, oil and gas, food, textiles, and printing and packaging.
