What Are Swivel Joints?

SWIVEL JOINTS are used in a variety of in-plant fluid transfer applications.

They permit 360° rotation with smooth flow and enable piping lines to follow any directions that piping line requires.

Dual-row ball bearings are incorporated in the bearing section and lubricated with grease to ensure high mechanical strength and to withstand large moment loads.

Our TB Niigata-Chiksan Swivel Joint's industry-leading quality and reliability contribute to stable plant operation by eliminating problems and leaks caused by hoses.

The sealing section uses a special shaped packing that provides a stable seal without any leakage of the internal pressure fluid.

Owing to its special structure, they reduce the frequency of maintenance and replacement, thus minimizing line stoppages, losses, and maintenance work.

Roof Drain System for Floatin Roof Tanks
(Conventional)

Niigata/TB floating roof tanks draining systems have a record life expectancy of more than 30 years in operations without significant issues or accidents occurrence.

Their market share is nearly 100% in Japan.

Niigata/TB draining system assembly design allows for permanently stable positioning of the drain inside the tank without possible interference with the floating roof legs when the tank is empty, guaranteeing no mechanical damage of the drain and no abrasion of the tank floor like hose drains would, as a result as not being guided inside the tank.

Roof Drain System for Floatin Roof Tanks
(Single Line)

Niigata/TB developed a more economical system using only four BD joints for submerged service for minor drainage tanks or tanks with a smaller roof surface.

Float Suction Skimmers (FSS)

TBG manufactures and designs floating suction units (FSU),
also referred to as floating suction lines (FSL) or floating suction skimmers (FSS), for use in horizontal or vertical,
above-ground storage tanks to extract the upper layer of the cleanest liquid without contamination.

Our FSUs are equipped with robust and durable Niigata Chiksan Swing Joints
with flange connections designed for long, trouble-free service lives for storage tanks of various shapes.

Construction

Willow

As a moving pipe, it is more rigid than a hose and can handle even the largest variations by simply changing the pipe's length. It can be installed in a small space because its length is extremely short in relation to the required displacement, which is typically a problem for high-pressure hoses.

Our hoses are made of steel pipes and have a specially coated sealing material to ensure high durability and pressure resistance. Steel pipes minimize the risk of rupture, making them exceptionally safe for use in high-pressure fire-extinguishing piping.

Example Fluids: Domestic wastewater, air, N2 gas, CO2 gas, LP gas, CFC, halon, etc. • Oil-based systems such as kerosene and light oil, NH3, etc.

Sanitary Swivel Joints

• By attaching it to the base of an existing hose, it prevents the hose from being twisted or damaged.

• By attaching it to the base of an existing hose, it is easier to change the outflow direction and route the piping.

• Since the hose length and bending radius can be reduced, a compact design is possible, and the piping layout can be easily changed.

• There is no need special tools to assemble and disassemble, which leads to labor-saving.
