SOLON, Ohio (June 10, 2003) - Swagelok Company now offers two new lines of instrumentation tubing. New Swagelok® insulated tubing, a cost-effective alternative to field-installed insulation of small diameter process lines, is designed to reduce heat loss and help protect personnel from hot process and steam lines. Surrounded by a fibrous glass, absorption-resistant insulation and a thermoplastic jacket, this tubing has uses in steam supply, condensate return, gas and liquid transport lines, or other applications in which weatherproofing and energy conservation are important.
New Swagelok jacketed tubing offers corrosion protection and mechanical protection in pneumatic, hydraulic, and other applications where insulation is not required.
Both Swagelok insulated tubing and jacketed tubing feature a thermoplastic, UV-resistant jacket that provides increased protection against galvanic and atmospheric corrosion. This durable coating also helps protect the tube against wear and abrasion.
Available in sizes from 1/4 to 1/2 in. and 6 to 12 mm in 316/316L stainless steel and copper, Swagelok insulated tubing and jacketed tubing meet the following material standards:
o ASTM A213, A269: Fractional size 316/31 6L stainless steel, welded or seamless o DIN 17458: Metric size 316/316L stainless steel o ASTM B68, B75: Fractional and metric size copper
