Moog Focal Introduces Its Latest Pneumatic and Hydraulic Fluid Rotary Union

July 10, 2018

Moog Focal is pleased to announce the launch of its latest Pneumatic and Hydraulic Fluid Rotary Union (FRU). The Model 810 FRU is designed for industrial and marine applications where multiple fluid passes need to be transferred across a rotational interface. There are a number of design options, depending on the application. The standard Model 810 FRU is available with two or four threaded ports of size 1/2 or 3/4 inch. A 1/2 inch on-axis bore enables easy integration with an electrical slip ring, fiber optic rotary joint or both.

The Model 810 utilizes sealed-for-life rolling element bearings, ideal for long endurance applications and low maintenance. Filled PTFE based seals run on a hardened surface to provide long service life, minimizing frictional heat generation and operational torque. For marine applications, the Model 810 is available in hybrid and fully stainless steel versions for added corrosion protection. This Fluid Rotary Union can be easily combined with Moog electrical and optical slip rings, contains pass isolation and cross channel flow prevention, and has been tested up to 5 million revolutions.
