Compression fitting ferrule
Single compression fitting ferrule may turn out to be the difference between an efficient process, and disaster. After all, if a fitting is not leak- or gas-tight, you will lose valuable resources. Or worse, oil may leak, endangering wild-life explosions may occur, exposing staff, leakages may damage expensive installations and tests may become unreliable.
In order to avoid high costs and tragedy, it serves to work with reliable compression tube fitting manufacturers, such as Swagelok.
How we guarantee the quality of our compression fitting ferrule
The reason we regard ourselves as especially reliable is because we have invested the full 70 years of our existence to product development and improvement. This has resulted in an unparalleled compression fitting ferrule. In fact, it is so leak- and gas-tight, that we had its technology patented.
Our compression fitting has not one, but two ferrules. The front ferrule creates a seal against the fitting body and on the tubing outside diameter. As the nut is turned, the back ferrule advances the front ferrule and radially applies and effective tube grip.
Our compression fitting ferrule is decidedly corrosion and chemical resistant. This durability ensures low maintenance, also in semiconductor and petrochemical industries. Furthermore, it can withstand vibrations, making this compression fitting ferrule highly recommendable for example in the oil and gas industry.
It can also be used in combination with extreme temperatures, for example in steam supply, or condensate return. And while boasting these features, it remains strong and ductile, and, therefore, easy to install. Can you imagine the costs you can safe if leak-tightness remains unquestioned under these conditions?
Our compression fitting ferrule technology enables re-use. This saves money, especially if your installation needs to be disassembled every so often, for example when maintenance needs to be carried out. It also saves time, because compression fittings are more easily installed than soldered or welded fittings.
