What to Expect

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

1. Analysis

If you are providing hose specifications, we will check to ensure that the results will meet the requirements. However, If you need our help to specify a type of hose, we will go through some steps which include factors such as size, temperature, application, material, pressure, and end connection type.


2. Fabrication

Our Swagelok-certified technicians will handle the fabrication. Swagelok assembly certification involves producing dozens of samples, each of which is inspected by Swagelok manufacturing engineers and put through destructive testing.


3. Quality Control

Every hose is pressure tested with water to ensure proper assembly and high performance. A pressure test certificate is then packaged with each hose. The rigorous assembly process and 100% testing ensure you receive a high-quality reliable hose.


4. Delivery

We clean and either cap or bag the hose to ensure contaminants are not introduced into your fluid system from the hose. Orders are shipped to you.
