Swagelok launches insulated, jacketed instrumentation tubing
Solon, OH—Swagelok Co. recently introduced insulation instrumentation tubing that reduces heat loss, and jacketed tubing that offers corrosion and mechanical protection.
Solon, OH— Swagelok Co. recently introduced two lines of insulated and jacketed instrumentation tubing. A cost-effective alternative to field-installed insulation of small diameter process lines, Swagelok’s insulation tubing reduces heat loss, and helps protect personnel from hot process and steam lines. Surrounded by 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.
Meanwhile, Swagelok jacketed tubing offers corrosion protection and mechanical protection in pneumatic, hydraulic and other applications where insulation isn’t required.
Both the insulated 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 tubing against wear and abrasion. Swagelok’s insulated and jacketed tubing is available in sizes from 1/4 to 1/2 in. and 6 to 12 mm in 316/316L stainless steel and copper.
