BlueSky Rotapipe

The RotaPipe joint provides the lowest operating torques in the industry with the capability of providing a full 360° of rotational freedom. It 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 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.

Product Description

The BlueSky Rotapipe is a high-integrity connector designed to provide piping systems with the required flexibility to compensate for thermal growth, vibration, or motion of equipment. It features a compact, robust, and lightweight design machined from near-net forging. The connector offers 360° of rotational freedom, along with a hard-faced bearing surface that reduces friction and wear.
