What are Swivel Joints?
A swivel joint is a joint between stationary pipes (or hoses) that rotate, allowing rigid pipes to be positioned when transferring gases, liquids, or semi-solid substances (e.g. petroleum, steam, cooling fluids ) to vehicles, vessels, containers, or equipment.
A common application of a swivel joint can be seen at a gas station when filling up your vehicle. Swivel joints are also common on equipment with hydraulic lines or in loading arms when loading and unloading bulk materials to trucks and railcars.
