The 2800 ELSN rotary joint is the ideal solution for their important PVC processing plants since it is able to reduce as much as possible the wear and tear of the joint, which could cause unplanned downtime of the machine and consequently increased maintenance costs.”

Luigi Rolfini – Sales Manager at Johnson-Fluiten


Misalignments are reduced and reliability is increased

The ELS series products are self-supporting joints especially designed to solve accelerated wear problems that might happen on these application types.

The double-guided design of this component aims to provide internal support for the rotary joint and to maintain perfect alignment even in cases where the roller or cylinder are not concentric.

The correct alignment ensures smooth operation and helps reducing stress that is harmful to the joint. This long-term stress leads to component failure, resulting in the need for machine shutdown, which causes a loss of production capacity.
