Hoses are designed to convey all types of media flexibly between changing connections. There are a lot of applications: From a fuelling process over loading and refuelling processes to hose stations for mixing processes or multi-purpose plants. We recommend using swivel joints in this process for two reasons: They make handling the hose lines easier and prevent hose torsion and the resulting damages.
RS swivel and ball swivel joints shift the rotary forces directly from the hose to the correspondingly designed couplings. In addition to the torsion protection, the ball swivel joints provide kink protection – this does not only prevent damage due to distortion, but also kinking of the hose.
This way the “consumer good” hose becomes a longer-lasting and cost-saving component of the hose line.
