In order to better serve your needs, it would be helpful to collect some basic information prior to contacting us. Most of the information will be located either on a plate fastened to your old Filton® unit or else easily identified by visual inspection. The useful information includes:

  • Rotary Union Model type i.e. Rotary R.E. Union

  • Serial number - generally identified either by a combination of two letters followed by four numbers or four numbers followed by a single letter i.e. ZN5631
  • Nominal size
  • Direction of rotation - if there is a groove in the spindle, it is a left-hand thread

Other information that is helpful, especially when trying to select a suitable model or when troubleshooting during times of maintenance or unit failure, include:

  • Type of fluid, flow rate, pressure, temperature
  • Ambient temperature
  • Rotational speed
  • Working cycle
