Indexator's new generation of hose swivels — the K100 — has a ball-free design, enabling the swivel to withstand heavy side loads and peak pressure while eliminating the problem with twisting hoses.

Hydraulic hoses are sensitive for twisting and only a few degrees of twist can reduce hose life by up to 90 percent. The elimination of twists increases hydraulic hose life time substantially, according to the manufacturer.

The ball-less design makes the K100-swivel suitable for applications with heavy side loads, high pulling forces, and high pressure and flow. Especially for extreme applications such as forestry harvester and processors heads, and felling attachments.

The modular construction also provides major customization opportunities with many different connection and seal principles. Due to few components the maintenance of the swivels is easy.

The compact design with a small external diameter also is well suited where installation space is limited.

Main advantages of K100 Hose Swivels:

  • Resistant to heavy side loads
  • Secure solution — it cannot be forced apart during work
  • Withstands high pressure levels
  • Surface treatment that is highly corrosion and wear resistant
  • Dirt and water-resistant seal that protects from outside particles
  • Easy maintenance
  • Hardened bearing surfaces
  • Compact dimensions
  • Optimized design with few parts
