The right hose keeps your process performing safely and cost effectively. The wrong hose could undermine your process, put people at risk, and compromise your bottom line – sometimes
without you being aware of it. These are the opening sentences from one of our most popular downloads, "Choose the Right Hose: A Practical Guide to Hose Selection". We have blogged many times previously about hose and hose selection, hosted the technical webinar "5 Steps to Selecting the Right Hose for your Fluid System", and created several short videos about hose and hose selection. We know the importance of having the correct hose in your application, so we are always thinking of ways to help you do just that. After all, Swagelok has over 20 series of hose and flexible tubing, including metal, PTFE, PFA, rubber, nylon, polyethylene, and vinyl, conductive and nonconductive hose, static dissipative hose, almost 40 different hose end connections, and multiple hose cover and tag options. A typical hose part number has at least 13 digits. There are nearly endless combinations of hose, end connections, and options to choose from.

Quick Look

With this in mind, we have created a two page hose and flexible tubing Quick Look to give you an overview of Swagelok hose and to help you quickly find the hose you are looking for. After looking at the Quick Look, you can dive into our 88 page hose catalog and find the hose you need quicker because you will know which hoses you need to look at more closely.

Assembled to order

After you find the hose you are looking for, have us put it together for you. We have a team of full-time technicians along with support staff managing the front end of the operation who focus on building hose in a facility dedicated for just that job. Together, these Swagelok Northern California associates help customers by supplying thousands of custom hose assemblies each year. Within our assembly process we maintain tight tolerances and certified testing. We can do hydrostatic tests, helium leak tests, and pressure decay testing. Some hoses require that we provide a test certificate, and some don't. But we can provide testing and documentation with any hose if requested. If the need ever arises, we can trace each individual hose back to the original technician and manufacturing process run. You can learn more about our hose assembly capabilities here »

Hose selection help

In addition to hose selection self-help resources and hose assembly services, we also have a dedicated staff of customer support specialists and account managers ready to help you choose the right hose. For example, this case study describes how we helped a Biopharm customer save money, get better performance, and increase efficiency with Swagelok U Series hose.
