BETTER BY DESIGN
The Swagelok tube fitting's extraordinary performance comes from a combination of design features.
The Swagelok patented geometry of the back ferrule provides a hinging colleting action that enables the Swagelok tube fitting to perform extraordinarily well in three key factors:
| Tube Grip
The unique hinging-colleting action provides more direct tube contact and gripping support.
The burnishing/polishing action creates concentrated zones of contact for a gas-tight seal.
The colleting region more effectively isolates any stress riser at the tube grip from system vibration.
The controlled phased sequential pull-up and contoured geometry, along with the SAT12 patented surface hardening process of the back-ferrule, enables the tube fitting components to work together in systematic harmony during assembly.
