BlueSky Rotaball

The RotaBall connector is an effective solution providing piping systems with the required flexibility to compensate for thermal growth, vibration, or motion of equipment in the piping system. It has the unique capability of providing a full 360° of rotational freedom. It is designed for use in oil extraction systems using thermal processes such as SAGD, cyclic steam, THAI, and SAP.

High quality and cost effective, with enhanced mechanical and sealing properties, BlueSky's flexible piping connectors provide reliable service in the most severe applications.
