1 Claim. (Cl. 285—97.5)
This invention relates to a‘ swivel pipe ?tting
and has for its principal object the provision of a
simple economical and highly e?icient swivel pipe
?tting which can be quickly and easily applied to
the pipe without the use of unions; which will
allow free rotative movement of the pipe without
leakage; and in which there will not be mechani
placed upon the gaskets to crush or deform the
latter since all stresses are absorbed by the ?anges
I2. The‘ nipples are free to rotate with their
?anges l2 sliding in the groove 20 of the collar
and with the gaskets l4 sliding on the tube I3.
The outer surface of the latter may be ground
on a centerless grinder to accurate dimension
so that a perfect seal is obtained at any point

Other objects and advantages reside in the
detail construction of the invention, which is de 10 and the tube. The elements can be economically
signed for simplicity, economy, and e?iciency.
