At Hunt Valve, our innovative engineering solutions include specialty hydraulic products such as rotary joints. A rotary joint is usually a one-off design that is specific to the individual customer application. This product can be as simple as a single pass unit or as complex as a multi-stage unit with up to 22 passes.
The rotary joint is a critical piece of equipment in the steel-making process. They are located in the hot metal mill at the basic oxygen furnace (BOF), in the continuous caster ladle turret and in the argon oxygen decarburization (AOD) process. Any failure at this end of the mill can lead to costly downtime, creating a major outage throughout the entire mill line.
Our innovative engineering team has the expertise to redesign and upgrade an existing rotary joint, transforming it into a more efficient and reliable product.
