Swaging with Gary - Copyloks

Watch this episode of Swaging with Gary as he talks with our technical advisor, Buster Caballero about tube fitting impostors called, Copyloks.

Let’s play a game…
Q:  If you needed an adhesive bandage what would you ask for? 
A:  Band-Aid.
Q:  And if you ask for a tube fitting, what would you ask for? 
A:  Swagelok!

Sometimes you ask for things and you don’t really get what you ask for. When you ask for Swagelok, are you sure you are always getting Swagelok? 

There are many fittings on the market that claim to be equal to and interchangeable with Swagelok—but they are not.  Make sure you purchase your tube fittings from an authorized Swagelok sales and service center. 

In this episode, Gary and Buster discuss:

  • What the Competition's Tube Fittings are Missing
  • The Dynamics of the Swagelok Tube Fitting
  • Swagelok's Energy Surveys
  • Getting the Most Out of Swagelok Tube Fittings
