"Swagelok is basically an industry standard. It's rated by our customers as the best solution that we can provide."

Marcos Porto
Specialty Gases Manager, Praxair

“Swagelok’s kitting and assembly solutions service gave us everything we needed for the sampling systems, right when we needed it. We didn’t have to buy stock in bulk, our installers didn’t have to compile their own individual inventories, and the pre-packaged kits were delivered to the door, on time. It was the ideal solution."

Johan La Grand
Imtech

"This place is a pleasure to work with. I called and asked what their order minimum was. They don't have one! I was able to set up an account that day (cash account, no terms). The woman set up my account and called me back within 30 minutes, totally unexpected speed. A company where customer service is still done right."

Jonathan P.

“We trust Swagelok because of the experience we’ve had using them.”

William E. “Liam” Keiser, PhD
Director of A. E. Lalonde Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Laboratory and Professor of Physics, University of Ottawa

"Nobody's perfect!! ;-). But seriously, only very rarely would I recommend some other brand for fluid/vapor handling than Swagelok Northern California. You guys are absolutely the best."

Will Kumler
Integrated Surface Technologies

“In less than two weeks they came up with a whole solution. And in the last five years I have [had] no more leaks in the system. That's the sort of capability and specialty that Swagelok provides, and no one else can."

Tan Ha, Former Master Technologist
HP Labs

"The new lube systems are compact, operator friendly, and equipped with modern filtration and coolers that are readily available. In addition, they are neat, clean, and leak-free. The cleanliness and temperature of the delivered oil is markedly improved. The installation will no doubt improve the reliability and maintainability of these gearboxes going forward."

Machine Shop Operator
Chem/Refining (US)

"It is crucial for our Field Operators to be able to grab samples with zero complications. We count on Swagelok Grab Sampling Systems to be the proper design and easy to understand.”

Lab Lead
US Chemical and Refining Company

"Swagelok was instrumental in providing critical support during an unplanned outage. With Swagelok’s support, we were able to have a seamless and on-time startup of a critical unit. Swagelok worked diligently to design standards, improve lead times, and deliver panels by our very aggressive need-by date."

Reliability & Rotating Equipment Engineer
Chem/Refining (US)

"Here at McCampbell we deal with dozens of companies on a regular basis, in our eyes Swagelok Northern California has reached near legendary status for unparalleled customer service! We often shake our heads over shoddy service from others, but actually look forward to ordering with Swagelok Northern California."

Barrett Clark
McCampbell Analytical, Inc.

"Swagelok's ability to identify our existing pain points demonstrates their product and application knowledge."

Reciprocating Engineer
Chem/Refining (US)

"Swagelok has worked with me and my engineers very closely on two critical development projects - providing prototype parts in a timely fashion as well as providing innovative solutions."

Senior Engineer
Semiconductor Manufacturing Firm

"Swagelok’s customized extended male connector fitting has allowed the simplification of these installations. This arrangement not only looks cleaner, it eliminates several pipe joints that no longer need to be monitored for potential leaks."

Rotating Equipment Reliability Manager
Chem/Refining (US)

"User friendly web page, timely response, fast service."

Amir Kondori
Cornes Technologies USA

“We needed precise welds, clean welds, and many of them. And it warranted us actually buying the welder. And I was so pleased when Swagelok hosted our machine guys down in the factory for the training course on welding. And our guys, they’re pretty good welders. And they thought, 'Ah, I’ve got a week holiday down here. We’re going to go down and learn a little bit about the instrument like how to turn it on. But we’re good welders. We’ve got this nailed.' They’ve never worked so hard in a training course in their lives, is the report that I got."

Ian D. Clark, PhD
Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Ottawa

“Our refinery is now benefiting from improved seal flushes to the seals and can easily see if there is an issue. The shaft seal leaks no longer dictate our refinery’s maintenance interval and we consider the Swagelok Plan 32 panel a reliable system.”
