The High-Volume Swaging Unit (HVSU) is aimed to increase safety and enables installers to preswage nut-ferrule sets onto stainless steel tubing
The High-Volume Swaging Unit (HVSU) is aimed to increase safety and productivity for the oil and gas, alternative fuel, and general industries. The HVSU enables installers to easily preswage nut-ferrule sets onto stainless steel tubing. The pneumatically driven and electronically controlled semiautomatic unit uses sensors to start and stop the process for consistent preswaging results. This process provides several reliability and convenience features including an automatic start when tubing is inserted and properly bottomed and prevention of over swaging with stroke-limiting tooling. No tools are need to switch from one tube fitting size to another, either.
