SWAGELOK JACKETED TUBE CONNECTOR
13 June 2013
PROTECTS TUBING, ELIMINATES SLEEVES AND SEALING TAPE
SOLON, Ohio (April, 2013) – A companion piece
to Swagelok jacketed tubing, the new Swagelok jacketed tube connector (JTC) is
engineered to connect jacketed tubing systems while protecting tubing from
external degradation in corrosive environments. Designed to safeguard against
environmental ingress in the chemical, petrochemical, oil, gas and pulp
industries, the JTC provides a leak-tight, Swagelok tube fitting connection
between sections of single jacketed-tubing, eliminating the need for sleeves
and sealing tape.
The jacketed tube connector’s patent-pending design combines proven tube fitting technology with an O-ring seal and an innovative, environmental jacket seal nut; providing a leak-tight seal on the stainless steel core of the jacketed tubing and a water-tight seal on the outer diameter (OD) of the jacketed tubing. The JTC design promotes streamlined installation and high performance, including:
- Ease of assembly—knurled jacket seal nut allows for easy, hand-tight assembly.
- Repeated reassembly—seal performance is maintained through repeated re-assemblies of the connector.
- Visual confirmation—jacket seal nut covers vent O-ring when leak-tight assembly is achieved.
- Vent port—prevents accidental pressurization of jacket cavity.
