Rotary Systems got involved at the highest level of motorsports when an engineer from a top team needed a small rotary union capable of running at up to 4000 RPM.  This was for an on-board tire inflation system to control tire pressure in real-time on the race car.  This union needed to be compact, light, free-spinning and able to handle temperatures up to 300 F and pressure up to 50 psi.  The engineers at Rotary Systems designed a custom mechanical seal rotary air union which fit into the hub of their wheel assembly.  The results have been beyond expectations – the customer has been able to maximize their test time and get the most out of their race tires at minimum cost.

Applications for Rotary Systems rotary unions are wide and varied.  If you have a special project, contact an applications engineer at info@rotarysystems.com, or call 800-959-0146 for more information.
