Product and Technical Questions
Yes. Most of our gaskets are custom made to your specifications, drawing, or sample cut on our flash cutter, waterjet, or by hand. We also carry a wide range of industry standard gaskets.
We carry hose and fittings in bulk, direct from the manufacturer, so we can make your specific hose in-house. We do carry some pre-made hoses, but most are custom made to the customer’s specifications.
Due to the vast number of different manufacturers of equipment, we typically must go by sample or drawing. However, we do carry industry standard gaskets and special application gaskets, such as boiler and flange gaskets.
Yes, we offer custom tubing assemblies, and have the capability to bend and flare tubing in many different configurations.
In many cases, we can cut and weld/braze customer fittings and use them as “adaptors” to get you going again.
We offer hydro-static testing for a charge. We test hose assemblies to one and a half times the weakest part of the hose assembly. We also tag the hose.
No. Under no circumstances should a camlock fitting be used in compressed air or steam service.
Hose is measured by the inside diameter. Tubing is measure by the outside diameter. To get an accurate measurement, it is best to start at the “1” and measure straight across.
