Built for extreme conditions, Swagelok® components help you optimize mission-critical process and analytical instrumentation systems.

Advantages for the Chemical Industry

Excellent gas-tight sealing and consistent reassembly help ensure your chemical plant systems—batch and continuous processing, fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, mixing, separation, and utilities—operate efficiently and enable you to produce chemicals economically in commercial quantities. Moreover, Swagelok tube fittings minimize fugitive emissions, as well as reduce process fluid leakage and operation costs. Fill the form to receive The Swagelok Tube Fitting Advantage for the Chemical Industry brochure.

Advantages for Refineries & Petrochemical Firms


This video shows Swagelok quality in action as our tube fittings withstand extreme tests.

The Swagelok tube fitting was patented and brought to market in 1947, resolving problems the refining and petrochemical industries were experiencing in making repeatable, reliable leaktight connections on process instrumentation systems. The patented case-hardening process and back-ferrule geometry produce an excellent colleting grip of the tube, minimizing the effects of vibration. Because this design uses consistent geometry instead of torque for gaugeable make-up, the Swagelok tube fitting can be used on a range of thick- or thin-walled, hard or soft tubing, while resisting the effects of pressure and thermal cycling. Fill the form at right to receive The Swagelok Tube Fitting Advantage for the Refining and Petrochemical Industries brochure.

Refinery & Petrochem Steam System Optimization

The Refinery & Chemical Steam System Reliability, Safety, and Optimization training course reviews all aspects of a refinery/chemical steam system and is designed to provide attendees with a solid understanding of steam system management including topics such as heat transfer, steam leakage, desuperheating, steam tracing, steam turbines, steam and condensate piping, safety, and steam system mass balancing. Attendees work in groups to accomplish different tasks relating to a steam system. 

Application Support

Each of our sales and account professionals specializes in a major market. We offer knowledgeable support with technical information, product selection, and fluid system design. That includes:

Front End Processing

We can help you meet challenges specific to installation and maintenance of process instrumentation systems. That includes optimizing the number of directly employed engineers on staff, minimizing or eliminating leaks, improving measurement quality and consistency, transitioning to wireless technology, reducing the amount of system maintenance needed, and more.

Back End Sampling

Few companies can match the analytical instrumentation products, services, and expertise offered by Swagelok. Using a combination of these resources, Swagelok Northern California can help you minimize flow volume for faster response, maintain sample purity, ensure data reliability, reduce your sampling footprint, increase system uptime, minimize leaks, and meet the growing demand to reduce maintenance time in analytical sampling systems. For maximum measurement integrity, build a high-performance process instrumentation system with all Swagelok fluid system components.
