The Swagelok tube fitting advantage
Swagelok tube fittings feature a robust tube grip, 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.
The patented case-hardening process and back-ferrule geometry provide excellent vibration fatigue resistance and tube support—even in harsh environments such as fuel processing or rotary equipment applications.
Excellent sealing and consistent reassembly mean accurate measurements of process parameters—air, steam, fuel, and water—to keep your plant operating efficiently. Moreover, Swagelok tube fittings minimize fugitive emissions, reducing process fluid leakage and operation costs.
Thermal shock resistance
The elastic, live-loaded design compensates for changes in temperature during system start-up and shutdown, and helps eliminate leakage related to rapid thermal expansion or contraction.
Swagelok tube fittings meet ASME B31.1 specifications and are available as nuclear ASME boiler pressure vessel code Section III, class 1 certified in 316 stainless steel. Swagelok Company works with standards organizations around the world to provide you with a product that meets your requirements.
Small-bore and flexible tubing options
Whatever your application, Swagelok has the small-bore and flexible tubing and hoses to form the backbone of your fluid delivery system. Small bore (up to 2 in. [50 mm] O.D.) tubing reduces the number of connections and potential leak points for greater system integrity.
Valves, manifolds, and regulators
With the right valves, manifolds and pressure regulators for your application, you get precise control.
Fabrication and assembly
We supply assemblies and fabrications—from small form-factor to highly complex—using Swagelok products and other customer specified components. Solutions can include custom wiring, automation, and third-party components.
For example, we can provide heated enclosures for natural gas, combined-cycle power plants with heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs), and other applications. Heated enclosures help to protect your cost investment from temperature extremes and optimize performance.
