Model 301 Pneumatic / Hydraulic FRU

FLUID ROTARY UNION (FRU)

Model 301 Fluid Rotary Union

The Model 301 is a single pass fluid rotary union that can be operated as a stand alone FRU. Its design has been optimized to allow any standard AC4598 / AC6200 Moog electrical slip ring (ESR) to be mounted directly on the Model 301 body, simplifying the integration and mounting arrangement.

The Model 301 utilizes sealed-for-life rolling element bearings to provide long trouble free service. Filled PTFE based seals run on a hardened surface to provide long service life, minimizing frictional heat generation and operational torque. This unit has been tested in excess of 80 million revolutions. The BSPP ports and mounting flange allow convenient fixturing against an O-ring sealed shaft or separate threaded conduit.

Features

  • 1-1/2 inch body O.D. to mount any standard AC4598 / AC6200
  • 1 pass with 1/2 inch BSPP ports
  • Rated to 145 psi [10 bar] at 250 rpm continuous service
  • Maximum working pressure 180 psi [12.5 bar]
  • Maximum recommended speed 2000 rpm (intermittent or with sufficient medium flow to cool assembly)
  • Stainless steel version available
  • Longer housing available to accommodate slip ring length

Benefits

  • Continuous 360º rotation

1 Operational life is dependent on pressure, temperature, rotational speed and duty cycle. Maximum values do not apply concurrently. Please consult the factory for actual value.

2 Break-in torque may be higher.

3 Flexible conduit should be used to couple to the rotating component. The torque arm must be loose coupled.
