Abstract : The patent relates to a device for transmitting high pressure fluid between relatively rotating members. One of the members is equipped with a protruding axial cylindrical pipe having an accurately machined outside diameter and the other member has an accurately machined central bore receiving said pipe. By careful positioning and dimensioning of parts the pipe of the one member rotates in the bore of the other member without friction and with negligible loss of fluid.
