GP Series 8-Passage Rotary Unions & Joints
The 8-passage, GP Series rotary unions feature specialized sealing technology suitable for vacuum and bidirectional pressures and eight independent flow passages capable of transferring different media types simultaneously.
The carbon steel (black oxide) construction is suitable for air/gas, coolant, and hydraulic service. Stainless steel models are available to prevent corrosion for use with applications requiring water or corrosive media transfer (see GPS Series).
GP 8-passage models with NPT thread connections consist of a unique shaft configuration for easier installation, allowing the choice of mounting the shaft connections using the threaded passages or O-ring face seal glands for flush mounting the union to an interface. GP 8-passage models with BSPP thread connections are not available with O-ring face seal glands.
Need to combine fluid with electrical power, signal and/or data transfer? No problem. The GP Series rotary unions are designed to integrate directly with our standard electrical slip rings. See options.

*Minimum torque required to rotate based on zero pressure with Oil/Hydraulic media (or Air/Gas media for SPS Series). Required torque to rotate may be greater when using other media types or dry running. For specific torque requirements, please contact DSTI to discuss your application.
*Suitable Water/Glycol or Coolant media must have rust inhibitors present. Oil/Hydraulic media must be petroleum-based. Please consult with DSTI for approval. All values listed under Technical Specifications are dependent on a combination of all application parameters. Please note operational life is dependent upon both rotational speed and duty cycle. Contact DSTI if your application requires operating close to the maximum rotational speed with a continuous duty cycle. Applications with temperatures above 220° F (105° C) require alternative seal materials. The use of Water media with temperatures above 212° F (100° C) require alternative seal materials. Please consult with DSTI regarding your specific application requirements.
