Advantages of using Danfoss swivel joints

Advantages of using Danfoss swivel joints

1.  Better system plumbing:

  • Less hose is needed when swivel joints are used, the system is more space efficient.
  • Can eliminate the need for tubing configurations to accommodate 90° and other angles.
  • Can be directly connected to hose lines frequently eliminating the need for adapters. 

2.  Prevent hose twisting and kinking:

  • The swivel action swivel joints prevent hose twisting and kinking.

3.  Less downtime:

  • The problem of hose twisting and kinking is eliminated and hose line replacement becomes significantly less.

4.  Absorb system shock:

  • Swivel joints are not rigid and therefore capable of absorbing some hose shortening when the system is pressurized. 

5.  Cost savings:

  • Less hose, fewer adapters and tubing configurations and less downtime add up to saving money when swivel joints are used.
