How to use a gap gauge when assembling tube fittings.
Swagelok Tube Fitting Reassembly Procedure
How to disassemble and reassemble tube fittings.
Using a Swagelok® Multihead Hydraulic Swaging Unit (MHSU)
Pre-swage a set of ferrules to specific tubing sizes using the Swagelok® Multihead Hydraulic Swaging Unit (MHSU).
Using a Hand Tube Bender
Watch how Swagelok® hand tube benders provide consistent, high-quality bends in tubing.
Installing a VCR® Metal Gasket Face Seal Fitting
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.
PTFE Tape Application
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.
Port Connector Assembly
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.
