In 1933, Kadant Johnson invented the rotary pressure union. It was a device that eliminated the problems associated with stuffing boxes and packing glands and allowed fluids to be introduced into rotating equipment in an economical method. While our early years were focused on sealing steam and water unions, today we offer thousands of configurations of standard and custom rotary unions applied to a variety of media including water, air, coolant, oil, molten salt, and gas. From mechanical seals to our DuraSeal™ high-performance elastomeric sealing materials, Kadant Johnson can design the right solution...

Standard Rotary Unions Type RX for water, thermal oil, and air ( 3⁄ 8” to 6”) The RX® rotary union features a balanced seal and carbon-to-tungsten carbide seal package that makes the RX union more robust and able to run longer than other ball bearing designs. The RX union is supported by two widely-spaced anti-friction bearings, capable of intermittent dry running, and has the balanced seal-loading springs located outside the flow area to minimise potential for fouling. The RX rotary union is available in sizes from 3⁄8" to 6" and is rated up to 260°C (500°F), 10 bar (150 psi), and 3,000 RPM. Type...
