Swivel Assemblies



     Lourdes swivel assemblies are manufactured for both specific and general applications. Designed and built to accommodate radial movement in hydraulic or pneumatic systems. Some specific applications are aircraft landing gears, flight control systems, ground/sea based antenna systems, gun turrets and missile launchers. In addition to standard metals, these low torque swivels are constructed from more exotic materials (i.e. titanium) and are designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions as well as the stresses of jointed motion. Lourdes hydraulic swivel assemblies feature full flow and minimum pressure drop with operating pressures to 8,000 PSI, proof pressure of 12,000 PSI and burst pressure of 16,000 PSI. Lourdes pneumatic applications vary from low pressure (1-5 PSIG) to high pressures of 100-500 PSIG.
