Swagelok Field Engineers Help You Solve Your Fluid System Challenges

Swagelok field engineers offer onsite support for your most complex fluid system challenges. Our team works alongside yours to help you increase safety, decrease operating costs, and improve the profitability of your fluid systems

What to Expect

Every customer, facility, and engagement is unique, but typically these are the steps when engaging with our Fluid System Specialists: 

1. Listening

Starting with a meeting or phone conversation, we gather information to understand the situation. We want to learn about our customer's applications, operations, and current challenges. Then we recommend the next steps and provide a quote, if applicable.


2. Inspection

Our Swagelok-certified field engineers will inspect your facility to pinpoint issues. Our thermal imaging and ultrasonic equipment find leaks as small as 1 x 10-3 cm3/s. We also note potential safety hazards, misapplication of components, and excessive wear or damage.


3. Analysis

Working with data and observations made onsite, we quantify each issue's impact on your operation. The advice reflects a range of considerations, such as issue location, severity, estimated cost, and effects on safety, emissions, system reliability/production capacity, and product quality.


4. Delivery

We deliver a report summarizing what we evaluated, issues observed, and our recommendations, and addressing each issue in detail. Details include but are not limited to the root cause, exact location/tag ID, and how to resolve the issue. Our customer gets as much time as they need to discuss the findings.
