Compressed Gas Leak Detection

Swagelok engineers detect leaks, identify their cause, quantify their cost, and specify how to tighten up. See the cost of each leak, calculated by looking at a leak's effect on energy costs, system reliability, safety, and other factors. Take action and save.

Fluid System Evaluation

Bring the applications experience of Swagelok field engineers to your facilities. They conduct a thorough evaluation of fluid systems and provide detailed findings to help optimize operational performance, mitigate a variety of risks, lower energy costs, and save time.

Gas Distribution Program

Swagelok pressure control specialists can evaluate the efficiency and safety of a customer's gas distribution system, report in detail on the root cause of issues, and advise on steps to take to lower energy costs and improve reliability.

Hose Advisory & Optimization

Swagelok field engineers inspect installed hose, gather information about routines and costs related to hose, and provide detailed guidance on how to make hoses perform better and last longer — including a hose register update (or new database).

Sampling System Evaluation

Our field engineers document existing systems, looking for ways to eliminate causes of poor sample quality, such as blockage or moisture carryover; reduce maintenance and analyzer downtime; resolve issues caused by high particulate loads; and more.

Steam System Audit

Find out where a plant is losing energy with a thorough steam system audit. Our experts conduct a detailed assessment of the customer's steam systems and components, document and tag areas needing attention, and advise on steps to repair and optimize.

Technical Support

Our technical support team can provide Swagelok part selection support, help configure products like a pressure regulator or valve, and much more. (For urgent issues outside business hours, call 510-933-6200 and follow "emergency service" prompts.)

Virtual Option

Many Swagelok advisory services can be provided via phone, video, file exchanges, and the like. Among other things, we can evaluate P&ID’s for functionality and suggest products or alternatives; evaluate models to advance design work/simplify layout; and more.

Pairing Onsite Services and Assembly Services

Customers get extra value when they use both our Onsite Services and Assembly Services.

During an onsite evaluation, a Swagelok field engineer gathers data on your existing, installed systems and delivers detailed information on how to improve it.

If you like, our team can go a step further and advise on using a Swagelok custom solution to solve a problem. We are glad to estimate the savings and other benefits from a custom solution, and handle fluid system design and assembly if you opt for it.

Hose Advisory

Diagnosing Hose Installation Errors

Problem—A local manufacturer experiencing production slow downs called in Swagelok Northern California field engineers for a system evaluation.

Root cause analysis—Our team zeroed in on a system handling both supply and return in a cooling media assembly. The supply and return hoses looked almost identical, and that was leading to numerous hose installation errors — even by their most experienced technicians.

Solution—Swagelok gave hose a unique type of connection, so it became physically impossible for technicians to reverse the supply and return components. Production sped up. Labor costs for rework dropped.

Pinpointing the Root Cause of Bad Data

Problem—A customer who was experiencing longer-than-anticipated response times on its analyzer called in Swagelok field engineers. Our team performed a system evaluation.

Root cause analysis—Fluid was changing phase multiple times as it traveled from tap to analyzer. Phase changes in a sampling line can deliver a sample to the analyzer that is not representative of the process, and as a result, the customer was making process changes based on inaccurate analytical data.

Solution—With Swagelok's help the customer eliminated all phase changes, improved its response time, and ensured representative results.
