Top 5 reasons to use Swagelok tube fittings

Top 5 Reasons to use Swagelok Tube Fittings


Swagelok tube fittings have a grip-type design that uses a unique "hinging and colleting" action to achieve optimal performance in three key areas:

Tube grip - hinging and colleting action provides more direct tube contact/gripping support.
Gas seal - burnishing/polishing action of the front ferrule creates concentrated zones of contact on the tube and on the body bevel for a stronger seal.
Vibration resistance - the colleting region better isolates stress risers at the tube grip to resist bending, deflection, and vibration.

2. Material

For optimal performance, Swagelok tube fittings:
– Take advantage of a stainless steel chemistry
– Provide superior Chloride Stress Corrosion Cracking (CSCC) resistance
– Are offered in a wide range of alloys to combat corrosion
– Can be used in engineered combinations
– Are made from only high-quality raw materials

3. Design

With 200 active patents worldwide, we continue to improve our proprietary design:
