Swivels

Sandvik produces hot isostatic pressed swivel components used in FPSO systems. These are heavy-duty items with internal passages for oil/gas, water injection and power connections.

Sandvik's duplex stainless steel multi-phase swivel components use the versatility of the hot isostatic pressing (HIP) technique, which is capable of accommodating the multiple flow paths.

HIP advantages

Using HIP products instead of, for example, castings and forgings mean several advantages, such as less machining and welding.
