Fluid Swivels

Eliminate alignment and orientation issues when connecting auxiliary lines

Marine drilling riser on rig.

Fluid swivels assist in the alignment and connection of flexible moon pool drape hoses to the goosenecks on a drilling riser telescopic joint or riser gas handling flow lines.

Our fluid swivels reduce the torsion imparted to the flexible hoses during rotation of the drilling vessel relative to the drilling riser. These high-pressure fluid swivels can be used with choke and kill lines, mud booster lines, hydraulic lines, and other auxiliary equipment during makeup of flexible hoses.


  • Rated for H2S service
  • INCONEL 625–inlaid ring grooves and seal surfaces for corrosion resistance
  • Redundant elastomeric seals that provide dual barrier between swivel bore and environment
  • Low-friction, self-lubricating composite bearings for high load capacity with low breakout torque and smooth rotation
  • Commonality of replaceable items across class and sizes
  • In-field serviceability
  • Elimination of alignment and orientation issues
