Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9718154A1] The invention relates to rotating apparatus (1) for the handling of objects, in particular containers (20), for example for the filling of said containers. The rotating apparatus comprises a support assembly (10) and a rotating assembly (14) driven by a rotary drive and rotatable in relation to the support assembly (10). The invention proposes that on the rotating assembly there is provided at least one discharge opening (46) for discharge of the fluid for cleaning a covering wall (22) stationary while the rotating assembly is turning, and optionally other fixed components (30). The at least one discharge opening (46) is connected to a fixed cleaning fluid supply by way of a revolving joint (42). The invention proposes that the revolving joint comprises a revolving joint support fixed or fixable to the support assembly to prevent rotation, and a revolving joint rotating unit connected or connectable to the rotating assembly (14) for rotation together. Said two rotating joint components are rotatably mounted on each other by axially directed sliding surfaces.
