One of the advantages of working with a stocking manufacturers’ representative in Texas is the extensive inventory these distributors offer that is specific to the types of parts and components used in the area.
This is extremely helpful for buyers, as the inventory levels mean that common as well as hard to find parts and components, including stainless steel swage fittings, are readily available as on-hand inventory. In the case of an extremely unusual fitting requirement, the stocking manufacturers’ representative can communicate directly with the manufacturer, resulting in fast arrival times of even atypical types of fittings.
The term swage fittings refer to the way the fittings are attached to the pipe, tube, or wire. They are attached by compressing the fitting to the component, resulting in a tight seal and a very resistant type of joint. The most common types of these fittings are the Oil Country fittings, and they are used across most areas of the oil and gas industry within Texas.
Swage Nipple Fittings
There are many different styles of swage nipple fittings. These are made to conform to standard tube sizes, and this makes it easy to choose the right size and design. These fittings can be threaded at both ends, or threaded and beveled to suit a specific application. Some of the fittings are also designed without threading or beveling, allowing for maximum flexibility.
These fittings are designed to withstand corrosion, which is a critical consideration in any oil and gas application. They are long-lasting and built to stand up to the same pressures and operating conditions as the tubing they are designed to fit.
With different design features in swage fittings, there is never a problem in finding the ideal component for the application. Fittings can be concentric and uniform in shape and size, or they can be designed with asymmetrical shoulders to fit into specific system design requirements.
