Oil & Gas

Applications & Products

We strive to become even larger within our business, to provide you with the very best on today's market. Penlink's main focus lays on reliability, cost-effectiveness and high quality in our services, making sure that we meet and exceed your expectations.

Coiled Tubing

Used in the oil/fracking industry

We provide rotary union and electrical slip ring solutions for coiled tubing applications. Designed for rugged-duty and high pressure well intervention - our rotary unions deliver reliable fluid transfer for coiled tubing applications such as cleanouts, circulation, hydraulic fracturing, acid stimulation, cementing, and drilling.

We can also provide fluid sealing solutions with options for direct OEM replacements and as well as complete specialized designs built to customer specifications and applicable standards.


Used in the Oil and Gas industry

The rotary joint in the crane provides the power to perform the necessary movements and lifting of the crane, therefore the rotary transmission package is of very high importance.  

Penlink offers a wide range of solutions, both hydraulic rotary unions and electrical slip rings. We can also integrate fiber optical channels and high accuracy encoder (slewing). 

We have a very wide range of ATEX, IECEx certified slip rings. We can also certify custom slip rings for small volume projects. If the crane operates in different zones or it needs to be an emergency use situation, we can offer combined solutions using two rotary joints. 

If requirements are needed for high data speeds, we can offer 1Gb/s data transfer in an electrical slip ring module. Our signal slip ring is sealed to make sure carbon dust from power rings doesn’t penetrate and disturb signal rings over time. We offer separated chambers in the slip ring due to new regulations in the industry.

Top Drive

Used in the oil and gas industry

The top drive application is an important part of drilling expeditions, it is a mechanical device on a drilling rig that provides clockwise torque to the drill string to drill a borehole. It is located at the swivel's place below the traveling block and moves vertically up and down the derrick, our rotary joints makes for a prefect fit when rotation and hydraulic transfer is needed with no tearing involved.

Handling longer sections of drill pipe enables a drilling rig to make greater daily progress because up to 90-foot (27 m) can be drilled at a time, thus requiring fewer "connections" to add another 30-foot (9.1 m) of drill pipe. Another advantage of top drive systems is time efficiency compared to other applications and with our reliable products makes for an outstanding solution for the oil and gas industry

Several different kinds of top drives exist, and are usually classified based on the "Safe Working Load" (SWL) of the equipment and the size and type of motor used to rotate the drillpipe. For offshore and heavy duty use, a 1000 short ton unit would be used, whereas a smaller land rig may only require a 500 short ton device.

Umbilical Winch Systems

Used in offshore and oil applications

We provide fluid sealing solutions and optical / electrical slip rings for umbilical hose reel applications designed to provide operational flexibility for offshore and onshore applications.

Penlink’s specialized rotary unions and slip rings  integrate directly into umbilical hose reel systems allowing reliable winding / releasing of hose and equipment. 

Suitable for pressures up to 20,000+ PSI [1,380+ BAR], and with a wide variation of combined electrical and optical passages, we can offer the solution that fits your requirements.
