Frequently Asked Questions

[fa icon="plus-square"] How do I pronounce “Swagelok”?
The name Swagelok comes from “swaging”, which is the process that our nut and ferrule tube fittings use to clamp onto tubing. It rhymes with “aging”. We hear lots of pronunciations, from “Swedgelok” to “Swag-e-lock” to “Swag-lock”. Really, you can pronounce it however you want, as long as you know who we are.
[fa icon="plus-square"] What about those blue tube support clamps?
In our Tubing Tools and Accessories catalogue they are called Bolted Plastic Clamp Support Kits, but we usually call them bolted plastic clamp supports. They require a few different pieces. More →
[fa icon="plus-square"] What’s the difference between a cap and plug?
The confusing part about caps and plugs is that the names we use are actually the opposite of the typical industry terminology. To add to confusion, we have Pipe caps and plugs and then we also have our patented Swagelok tube fitting caps and plugs. More →
[fa icon="plus-square"] What is a metric thread?

A metric thread is recognized under ISO (International Standards Organization) and is a general purpose thread that is used more widely in Europe.

Many pros think that if a thread is not NPT then it is metric. This is not the case! 

Generally threads can be broken down into National Pipe Threads (NPT), British Standard Pipe Thread (BSP), DIN, JIS, SAE Straight Threads, and True Metric threads. There are two kinds of ISO metric threads: coarse and fine. More →

[fa icon="plus-square"] What’s the name of those rubber tube supports?
Swagelok provides a variety of tube support systems and they can get a little confusing. The simplest are P Clamp Supports, also known as “P Clips”. It’s a stainless steel clamp lined with black EPDM, like a rubber. These clamps are also available in carbon steel. They are easy to install, using one screw or bolt to attach them to a wall or cabinet.
[fa icon="plus-square"] How do I join different tubing materials?

Depending on what materials are to be joined it may be possible to join the tubing using an autogenous butt weld. Otherwise, a flux or filler material may be required to allow welding to join two dissimilar tubing materials. Unfortunately, there may be a few special cases where there is no approved solution for joining dissimilar materials.
