Why choose the compact Swivel?

Why choose the compact Swivel?
26/07/2019

Over the past five years the supply of Compact Swivels has only increased. They are now being used a broad range of industries including drilling, mining, chemical and offshore. Our customers don’t tend to buy one though, they keep coming back for more. Why is this the case?

In this short blog we have pointed out the five main factors to the Compact Swivels Success

Compact Why not start by stating the obvious? The compact Swivel to our knowledge is the most compact design on the market. It’s the perfect solution when space is limited yet you need pipework to articulate or stress and torsion to be reduced. Customers have enjoyed the low-profile design yet are impressed on its ability to do the required job.

Lightweight I guess this comes with the compact design. It might seem we are again pointing out the obvious here but it’s a point which many forget. Pipe assemblies tend to be heavy and weight is always a concern. Due to the compactness of these Swivels these are lightweight and a great addition where weight is a constraint.

Simple yet effective design With so little space, you might be thinking does it operate smoothly? Well the answer to that is yes. The Swivel consists of one row of ball bearings. These bearings have high load capacity and are installed through a single hole so that it is virtually impossible for the Swivel to separate in service. It also has one row of needle roller bearings which keep the main bearings and seals perfectly aligned. The main seal in either Nitrile or PTFE are two of the best wearing seals and keep the bearing chambers protected. Not only that we also have a dust seal in this space to keep the dirt out and allow grease purging to clean the bearing area.

That’s the technical bit but what it means is:

Smooth operation Quick Seal Change Easy Repair Easy re-grease

Cost effective Is it the Cheapest Swivel on the market? No. Is it affordable? Yes. At EWFM we pride ourselves on quality. The Compact Swivel isn’t the cheapest in the market due its engineered design but it is definitely an affordable product. If you are looking for a product that offers smooth long-lasting operation at a good price then the Compact Swivel is your answer.

Quick Lead times Due to the popularity of these products parts are often kept in stock. This means speedy lead times. They are an ideal solution when a high-quality solution is needed quickly.

So, there you have it. Our five mains reasons to why our compact Swivel is so successful. There is a lot information missing from this blog such as size, materials etc but this can all be found on our product page: https://www.ewfm.co.uk/product/compact-swivel-joints.html/
