Notification of Change
Swagelok’s Hose Service Group (HSG) is excited to announce that the T Series PTFE hose will be transitioning from a swaged to a crimped design for assembly of end connections starting December 1, 2019. We are advising you now so you can communicate with your customers that require an advance notification of change.
While this change will allow us to increase manufacturing efficiency, we are also currently evaluating the following possible advantages:
- Improved product performance allowing for increased pressure ratings at elevated temperatures that will be updated along with the product dimensions as needed in the Hose and Flexible Tubing catalog, MS-01-180
- Inclusion into our distributor crimp cell capabilities for local assembly
The current swaged design will continue to be the only version supplied until December 1, 2019. Following that date, crimped ends will be supplied as end connection inventory of swaged assemblies are depleted. You may see both designs in orders containing multiple end connection types until the transition is complete.
