Your Authorized Swagelok Product and Service Center

In the past we've written about the advantages of using hose in your fluid system instead of piping and tubing. There are fewer connection points, and therefore fewer places for leaks to develop, and the need isn't as great for cutting an exactHose guide length. 

Knowing that you want to go with hose is one thing, but that leaves the question of how to choose the right hose. At Swagelok, we have 18 different series, plus variations to each of those. Sizes range from 1/8 to 2 inch, and there are over 30 end connection options. And then there are the accessories. 

It can start to feel overwhelming.

To help our customers select the best hose for their needs, Swagelok has created An Installer's Pocket Guide for Swagelok Hoses. get hose guide

In this 145 page guide, we packed in information like: 

  • Selecting hose material based on environmental factors
  • A temperature range and working pressures chart
  • Proper installation technique and how to inspect a hose
  • Testing, tagging, and other options for the hose
  • Recommendations by industry, material type, end connections, and the various options that are available (covers, tags, ECE approval, etc).
