One of the most common questions we hear is whether our Swagelok Tube Fitting is rated for vacuum service. A customer recently experienced success with tube fittings in a vacuum furnace application. He was so thrilled with the performance of the tube fitting - he insisted we share!
The customer needed fittings, valves, and hose connections to allow 20 psig argon purge gas into a vacuum chamber, and then hold a a negative pressure of 0.1 millimeter of mercury (mm hg) manometric unit of measure. (1.0 x 10-1 Torr). Swagelok Minnesota demonstrated how tube fittings mitigate leakage compared to pipe fittings and provided product test reports to validate Swagelok tube fitting leak testing up to 1.8 x 10-6 Torr.
Our customer chose the Swagelok tube fittings, 40 Series valves, and the FJ Metal Hose.
