Tube Fitter's Manual

Welcome to the Reference page for the Swagelok Tube Fitter’s Manual

The newly revised (May 2015) edition still contains the information you have always counted on, such as troubleshooting, tubing specifications, and pressure ratings. But it was also expanded to include information on selecting tube fittings for severe service requirements, metallurgy, innovations in product design, and advanced manufacturing processes.

To increase the depth and improve the accessibility of information in the Tube Fitter’s Manual, we added links to important information below, such as supplemental publications or videos. The information is arranged by chapters.

** Please bookmark this page for future reference. **
