The unrivalled success of Chiksan® Loading Systems is largely due to another first in liquid handling, the Chiksan® swivel joint, which ensures fluid transfer continuity between two mobile sections. The durability of this swivel joint has been field proven and regularly enhanced since its inception in the early 1920's.The new Series 2000 Chiksan® swivel joint is the right solution for the widest possible range of products.
The FMC Chiksan® swivel joint acts as the "heart" of loading/unloading arms and jumper assemblies. It provides reliability and sealability while transferring the product even under extreme temperature and pressure conditions.
The swivel joints, which permit a wide range of horizontal and vertical movements, are very easy to handle, move and position.
The range can meet almost all chemical, gas or oil product transfer requirements, even in the most difficult service conditions (low or high pressure, very low or high temperatures), while taking into account specific conditions of use (underwater applications, aggressive products, etc.).
Swivel joints ensure dynamic watertightness and can be used for many industrial applications, such as pneumatic or hydraulic mobile links, pneumatic or hydraulic machines with rotating elements, etc.
The number one priority of FMC is to offer the solution best suited to your fluid transfer requirements, from the easiest to the most demanding. The Chiksan Series 2000 Swivel Joint is the latest result of our constant investment and commitment in R&D, benefiting from more than 40 years of experience, as well as the latest technological innovations.
