The Bearing Swivel is designed to allow free rotation of the toolstring and minimize line torque during slickline or cable deployment. The thrust bearing design ensures that the swivel continues to rotate smoothly when subjected to high loads.
The Swivel is generally positioned directly below the rope socket to prevent torque creating an issue with wirelines. The Bearing Swivel incorporates several design features including robust thrust-type bearings with an integral grease nipple to ensure internal components are continuously lubricated for a prolonged working and storage period. Critical internal components of the Swivel are also electro-less nickel-plated to further assist in prevention of internal corrosion which is common with standard swivel joints.
