In the spirit of continuous improvement, Swagelok is transitioning from brass to 316 SS DESO stem retainers for QC4 series Instrumentation Quick-Connects. 316 SS will provide a more consistent crimp performance, translating to more consistent assembly, testing, and field performance. The transition occurred in the first quarter of 2018.
Here is a side-by-side comparison of the new and the old retainer.
