Hose Advisory & Optimization
Reducing Costly Hose Repairs
Swagelok Hose Advisors are trained to identify ways to enhance your hose selection, installation, inspection, and maintenance procedures to improve hose life and performance. We go beyond surface examinations to discover the underlying cause of failures or issues like kinking, selection, compatibility, length, and connections.

Swagelok recommendations help customers prioritize
We thoroughly inspect, then report in detail exactly how to make hoses perform better and last longer, so you get the best return. You get expert visual inspection followed by a detailed report with recommendations and replacement options. We deliver a preventative maintenance schedule and documented hose inspection steps for your specific facility. And we provide a hose register update (or new database) with our survey findings, in the format that works for you.

Detailed reporting and recommendations
A typical Swagelok report may run several dozen pages. It is designed as a detailed road map to increased reliability, decreased energy consumption, and reduced emissions due to component failures, installation errors, and incorrect product selection.
We offer local, accessible hose experts
We don't just hand off a report and wish you luck. Our Technical Support Team can provide expert hose selection and end connection selection support, as well as advice during installation and commissioning. We also offer best practices information regarding hose selection, installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. And if an urgent issue ever arises, you can reach us 24x7 at 510-933-6200.
Hose fabrication and more
Our local team can build hose for you. We can combine any of 22 types of hose/flexible tubing with any of 89 end connections, in almost any length, in small or large quantities. Every hose is built and tested here in Fremont by Swagelok-certified technicians. (Clean room assembly and custom kitting are also available.)
What to expect
Often things progress as follows:
Starting with a meeting or phone conversation, we gather information to understand the problem or goal. We want to learn about our customer's application, operations, and current challenge. Then we recommend next steps and provide a quote, if applicable.
Swagelok hose advisors walk the floor of your facilities to inspect hoses in operation. They note hose maintenance cycles, hose life, installation procedures, frequency and cost of replacements, and other issues.
Working with data and observations made onsite, we quantify each issue's impact on your operation. Advice reflects a range of considerations, such as issue location, severity, estimated cost; and effect on safety, emissions, system reliability/production capacity, and product quality.
We deliver and discuss recommendations. Reports summarize what was evaluated and our top recommendations then show detail on each issue in an appendix. Customers have as much as time as they need to discuss the findings with our field engineer(s).
