Fluid Handling Products and Solutions
Kadant's fluid handling business specializes in the design and manufacture of rotary joints, rotating unions and precision unions. Rotating unions are mechanical seals that connect rotating cylinders to fixed piping to transport steam, water, thermal oil, coolant, hydraulic oil, and other media into and out of the roll.
In addition to rotary unions and related accessories such as flexible metal hose, syphons, and sight flow indicators, Kadant's fluid handling division also designs and manufactures steam and condensate systems, advanced controls, and fluid handling systems that incorporate float-operated and float-free pumps, separator stations, steam jet thermocompressors, and direct injection heaters.
To complete the integration of Kadant products into the process, services including training, installation, maintenance, trouble-shooting, and analysis are available.
