The steel industry is one of the largest users of rotating unions primarily for continuous casting machines (CCM) which use Deublin rotating unions to cool the numerous rolls that support molten slabs as it moves by gravity through various segments onto a run-out table to downstream annealing and heat treating. The slab is formed into coil or sheet. Coil is further converted in processing centers that require hydraulic unions for actuation of mandrels.
Continuous Casting Machines
Molten steel is poured from massive ladle turrets into a mold that pushes thru various segments over hundreds of water-cooled rolls, and eventually to a run-out table for further processing. The slab is converted into sheet or coil.
Coil Processing Mandrels
Metal service centers perform such cold-processing as slitting or cutting coils, stamping sheet and more. Deublin hydraulic unions are used for holding of the steel rolls, and actuation of mandrels.

Most common media used for cooling in a variety of applications including printing, plastics, tire and rubber, steel, and aluminum casting
Common media that expands the temperature range of water for both heating and cooling, primarily rolls
Media used for pneumatic applications that transmit air at specific pressures or volume, including clutch, brake, machine tool, holding, clamping
Media used for applications that deliver fluid pressure for actuation, clamping, and, indexing
Media used for hydraulic applications that deliver fluid pressure for actuation, clamping, indexing; brake fluid requires unique sealing technology vs. hydraulic
Most common media for machine tool applications; through-spindle coolant dispenses at the cutting surface for greater efficiency than flood cooling
Minimum quantity lubrication or MQL is a mixture of air and coolant prevalent in machine tool applications
Media used for heating of rolls for a variety of applications including plastics, paper, tire, and rubber
Media used in heating applications, primarily rolls for paper, corrugating, converting, tire and rubber, and food processing
