The unparalleled success of ATECO® Loading Systems can be attributed largely to another groundbreaking innovation in liquid handling—the ATECO® swivel joint. This component ensures the continuity of fluid transfer between two mobile sections. The durability of the ATECO® swivel joint has been field-proven and consistently improved since its introduction in the early 2000s. The TP17100M ATECO® swivel joint is the ideal solution for a wide range of products.

The AKTEK ATECO® swivel joint serves as the 'heart' of loading/unloading arms and jumper assemblies, providing reliability and sealability during product transfer, even under extreme temperature and pressure conditions. These swivel joints, allowing extensive horizontal and vertical movements, are user-friendly, easy to handle, move, and position.

The range is capable of meeting nearly all chemical, gas, or oil product transfer requirements, even in challenging service conditions (low or high pressure, very low or high temperatures), and considering specific usage conditions (underwater applications, handling aggressive products, etc.).

Swivel joints ensure dynamic watertightness and find applications in various industrial uses, such as pneumatic or hydraulic mobile links, pneumatic or hydraulic machines with rotating elements, etc.

AKTEK's top priority is to offer the most suitable solution for your fluid transfer needs, ranging from the simplest to the most demanding. The ATECO® Series 5000 Swivel Joint represents the latest outcome of our ongoing investment and commitment to research and development, benefiting from over 8 years of experience and incorporating the latest technological innovations.

Benefits of Swivel Joints

  1. Efficient Water Drainage: Swivel joints facilitate efficient water drainage from the storage tank roof, preventing the accumulation of rainwater and reducing the risk of structural damage caused by water pooling.

  2. Adaptability to Roof Movements: The design of swivel joints allows them to adapt to movements, expansions, and contractions of the tank roof. This flexibility ensures continuous and effective drainage, even in changing weather conditions.

  3. Prevention of Water Ponding: Swivel joints play a crucial role in preventing water ponding on the tank roof, safeguarding against potential issues related to excessive water accumulation.

  4. Protection Against Corrosion: By minimizing water exposure and drainage issues, swivel joints contribute to the protection of the storage tank roof against corrosion, extending the lifespan of the tank.

  5. Reduced Risk of Leaks: Swivel joints help minimize the risk of leaks by directing water away from critical areas of the tank roof. This is essential for preventing potential corrosion and maintaining the integrity of the tank structure.

  6. Enhanced Safety During Maintenance: Effective water drainage supported by swivel joints enhances safety during maintenance activities on the tank roof, reducing the risk of slips and falls for personnel accessing the area.

  7. Prevention of Ice Formation: Proper drainage facilitated by swivel joints helps prevent the formation of ice on the tank roof during cold weather, contributing to the overall safety and functionality of the storage system.

  8. Extended Structural Lifespan: The role of swivel joints in preventing water-related issues contributes to the extended lifespan of the storage tank structure, ensuring its long-term reliability.

  9. Versatility in Tank Configurations: Swivel joints are versatile and can be used in various storage tank configurations and designs, making them suitable for a wide range of industrial applications.

  10. Maintenance of Aesthetic Integrity: Efficient water drainage supported by swivel joints helps maintain the aesthetic integrity of the storage tank by preventing unsightly water stains or streaks on the roof surface.

  11. Compliance with Industry Standards: Implementing swivel joints in the storage tank roof drain system ensures compliance with industry standards and regulations, promoting the safe and effective operation of the storage facility.

In summary, Swivel Joints for Storage Tank Roof Drain Systems provide multiple benefits, ranging from corrosion protection to enhanced safety during maintenance, contributing to the overall efficiency and longevity of storage tank structures.
