Swagelok is transitioning the T series hose from a swaged end connection to a crimped design.
As we finalize this transition, the T series will use the remaining inventory of swaged components. Once that inventory is depleted, that end connection will begin using crimped components. If two different end connection styles are needed on a hose, the end connections will not be mixed between connection methods (both will be swage or both will be crimp). Furthermore, a single order will not use mixed styles.
To assist in making this transition as smooth as possible for customers, all existing certifications on the swage design (such as CRN and ECE) are in place for the crimp design.
The new design offers significant advantages over the older swaged product:
- Increased pressure rating at elevated temperatures, potentially increasing customer applications.
- Improved traceability with the transition of the product from material trace 2 to a trace 1 design with a stamped heat code.
