Proper, consistent tube end preparation is one of the critical processes in creating a leak-tight tube fitting connection.
How to use a gap gauge when assembling tube fittings.
How to disassemble and reassemble tube fittings.
Pre-swage a set of ferrules to specific tubing sizes using the Swagelok® Multihead Hydraulic Swaging Unit (MHSU).
Watch how Swagelok® hand tube benders provide consistent, high-quality bends in tubing.
Swagelok® VCR metal gasket face seal fittings offer the high purity of a metal-to-metal seal, providing leak-tight service from vacuum to positive pressure.
Use PTFE Tape as a thread sealant on male tapered pipe threads to aid in sealing.
Use Swagelok SWAK anaerobic thread sealant to provide reliable sealing on metal pipe threads.
A port connector enables fitting-to-fitting connections via a machined ferrule connection on one end and a tube adapter connection on the opposite end.
Via a simple installation process, Swagelok plugs are used to block a fitting port when needed.
Swagelok caps are used to block off the end of a tube run and are installed using the same procedure as a tube fitting.
The Swagelok Tube Adapter complements the Swagelok tube fitting and allows fitting-to-fitting connections to help eliminate difficult alignment problems and reduce inventories.
