Relevant Applications

Swagelok is in a unique position to support Naval projects on a global scale. Locally, we service the U.S. Navy third fleet and have had detailed involvement with the USNS Mercy. There are several key areas where we can commonly provide support:

Hydraulic actuation systems

Cleanliness and is essential to proper operation of these systems involving steering, aircraft elevators, propeller systems and damage control valves. O.D. tubing and Mechanically Attached Fittings (MAF) have been used for applications up to 1" O.D.

Air (compressed) systems

Design for high pressure air and cleanliness for these systems involving gas pressure and diesel engines, pneumatic hoists and control air for regulating valves. Copper-nickel alloy tubing and Monel fittings are available for uses like these. 

Lube oil systems

Crucial to a ship's propulsion, the pressures and temperatures involved are within range of current Swagelok products, in most cases. 

Potable water systems

Post-installation cleanliness is vital to provide consumable water using brazing/ welding and flushing processes. Swagelok MAF are available for these uses, as well as sizes up to 1" O.D. in Monel grip type fittings, along with class 200 70-30 copper nickel alloy tubing.

Chill and Sea Water Piping
