Adding to their growing list of clients in the upstream oil industry, Rotary Systems worked with a large original equipment manufacturer in Asia to design a custom rotary union-slip ring assembly for a coil tubing reel. Coil tubing is a continuous spool of pipe on a reel that gets pushed into a well bore. Coil tubing allows for a number of well intervention operations performed on a live well including cleanout and perforating the wellbore as well as retrieving and replacing damaged equipment.

This design features a sixteen passage rotary union rated up to 7000 psi for the transfer of hydraulics with anti-rotational tabs on the housing. The integrated slip ring has twelve circuits, with each circuit rated at three amps.

This unique design was machined utilizing the latest CNC machining center featuring a five axis high efficiency integrated mill turn process. These machines drastically reduce the cycle times on machining offering a more competitive price in a very competitive market.

Rotary Systems is currently working with a number of oil and gas companies on several active projects for coil tubing, top drive, high pressure hose reel, and drilling applications. Custom rotary union – slip ring combinations like this are being designed and manufactured daily at Rotary Systems. Our engineers have a combined 80 years of experience designing custom rotary unions and slip rings for any industry. See what Rotary Systems custom design experience and technology can do for you.
