The D1010 is the standard swivel joint with two ball tracks. It is usually used where large size swivel joints have to take heavy loads (typically for Emco Wheaton Marine Loading Arms). Both ball tracks of the carbon steel version are hardened and polished, giving the swivel joint a high degree of load capacity and long service life, even under extreme loads.
The internal flange makes it possible to change the seal without removing the swivel joint from the pipeline.
The sealing surfaces are plated with stainless steel and precision-finished to prevent corrosion, ensuring that the seal that slides along these sealing surfaces is not damaged and will seal perfectly.
The D1010 swivel joint, made of a special aluminum alloy, is not supplied with hardened ball tracks due to material characteristics, therefore it is only suitable for normal loads. Aluminum swivel joints have no specially plated seal faces due to the chosen alloy.
The D1010 swivel joint can be relubricated via grease nipples. If required, the balls can be removed and replaced by first removing the ball track plugs.
