Connect, convey, control fluids with Swagelok parts and custom assemblies


No matter what segment of the power industry you operate in, Swagelok stands behind you with the highest levels of quality, reliability, and performance, backed by more than 65 years in the industry. Our products meet key standards, including ASME Section III and B16.34. 


Keep your plant connected with tube fittings and quick-connects. Swagelok tube fitting performance is defined by a robust tube grip, a leak-tight gas seal, and excellent vibration resistance, even in harsh or high-stress nuclear environments. Expect the same quality in our line of quick-connects.


Whatever your application, Swagelok has the small-bore and flexible tubing and hoses to form the backbone of your fluid delivery system. Small-bore tubing (outside diameters up to 2 inches, or 50 mm) reduces the number of connections and potential leak points for greater system integrity.


Swagelok valves, manifolds and regulators give you precise control for your application.


Swagelok Northern California can provide more than just individual parts. We also offer Swagelok Custom Solutions, complete assemblies and fabrications. Swagelok guides you every step of the way, from the design to the execution phase.

Our expertise goes beyond our own components. We also deliver solutions that can include custom wiring, automation, and even third-party components that you might specify. The job can be as simple as putting an adapter on a valve or putting a single bend in a piece of tubing. But it can also be as involved as putting together entire subsystems with complex configurations of tubing.

Options include high-quality Swagelok components and the ease of implementation of solutions such as heated enclosures used in natural gas combined cycle power plants with heat recovery steam generators. Heated enclosures help to protect your cost investment from temperature extremes and optimize performance.
