Parker Stratoflex high-pressure swivel joints provide key functionality and reliability when rotation is required in a fluid or pneumatic conveyance systems. Designed with precision-made bearings for smooth movement and reduced torque, and qualified at over 100,000 swivel cycles, Parker Stratoflex swivel joints are the ideal solution for rotating conveyance systems.
Full 360-degree rotation with low torque at full system pressure prevents hydraulic system flex hoses and rigid tubes from potential damage due to twisting, binding, or kinking. The protection is beneficial both during installation and operation in critical areas, including landing gear and cargo door actuation.
Engineered and tested to meet or exceed military standards, Parker Stratoflex swivel joints are built for long life in the harshest conditions. Combined with Parker Stratoflex’s leading hose and tube assemblies, and innovative coupling designs, high-pressure swivel joints from Parker Stratoflex ensure your aerospace fluid conveyance system is performing with proven reliability.
Consult Parker Stratoflex Division for specific size, configurations, and availability to meet your system requirements.
