Pull the plug on Costly Leaks
Leaks of all types are common in tire manufacturing. Swagelok associates can help identify and stop them, keeping your operations safe, productive, and profitable.
Steam and Condensate Leakage
Problem: The leading cause of leaks in a steam and condensate system is the use of threaded pipe connections; however, welded connections also have shortcomings.
Solution: Swagelok tube fittings provide many advantages over threaded pipe/welded connections due to robust construction, extensive testing, and easy workability.
Compressed Air Leaks
Problem: Compressed air systems are found in nearly every industrial facility, and nearly all have leaks. If you notice that compressors are running longer without any other changes being made to the system, it's a good bet the system has developed leaks.
Solution: A leak survey from Swagelok can help you reconsider what compressed air leakage is doing to your bottom line. It’s often more harmful than you think—leakage can eat away 20 to 30% of a typical compressor's output efficiency.
Hydraulic Oil Leaks
Problem: The costs associated with hydraulic oil leaks include:
• Makeup Fluid
• Contaminant Ingress
Solution: Swagelok products are rigorously tested to stringent standards for quality and performance, meaning you can be confident these components deliver high value and low total cost of ownership.
Paths to Plant Optimization
Stronger components are just part of a healthy fluid system. As a complete solutions provider, Swagelok is engineered to take the pressure off of you.
