Since it is corrosion-resistant, Swagelok recommends its gaugeable alloy, mechanically attached tube fittings for use on ships. Swagelok also carries medium and high pressure fittings designed for water-jet cutting and blasting in the oil, gas and aerospace industries.

Swagelok's tube fittings are described as consistently gaugeable as well as easy to install, disconnect and tighten with no torque transmitted to the tubing during installation. The company also markets a gap inspection gauge used to determine if the fittings are adequately tightened following their installation.

Swagelok's installer's pocket guide for its tube fittings includes information on interchanging parts, hydraulic swaging units and ordering information. Tubing data sheets, which include information on engineered combinations, are available to assist in the selection of the proper assemblies in relation to allowable working pressures and elevated temperatures. A network of over 200 authorized sales and service centers offer Swagelok products and services in 70 countries.
