Vacuum Plus Power Plus...
A large international chemical company was having problems translating their design for a new manufacturing system into a functional reality. They required a single passage rotary union for a vacuum application, and needed it combined with an electrical slip ring which would supply power to heaters within their system. Complicating matters further was the customer’s need to be able to drive the manufacturing process through the union. It looked as if the solution would require dealing with multiple suppliers, as well as the additional expenses of time, effort, and cost required to integrate multiple components. Hoping to find a fully integrated solution they brought the problem to Rotary Systems.
Working hand in hand with the customer’s engineers, the Rotary Systems design team analyzed the vacuum, power, and load application requirements and went to work. They created a combination rotary union and slip ring assembly that included a support flange on the housing along with precision radial ball bearings to support the load. This custom design also provided an internal keyway to allow the customer to run a drive shaft through the union. Rotary Systems delivered a single, fully integrated, easy-to-install assembly – just as the customer had requested.
