Liquip’s 3” Hot Air swivel has been custom engineered for use on
dry bulk tankers. This lightweight swivel can be fitted between the
hot air blower on the prime mover and the trailer liquification jet to
remove torque forces on hoses transferring hot air.

This swivel is not suitable for use with liquids.

Features & Benefits
  • Automatic operation (once fitted), providing low friction 360º rotation around its axis.
  • Hard anodised aluminium bodies to avoid threads seizing. 
  • Deep groove ball bearing fitted for higher load capacity and long life.
  • Low friction PTFE seals able to withstand extreme temperatures. 
  • High temperature bearing grease ensuring suitability for up to 150ºC.
  • Installation tool (available separately) designed to match housing and ensure the swivel will achieve a tight fit. 
  • Grease nipple for regular maintenance and servicing.
