What Are S-LOK Certifications?

The two most important certifications when looking at stainless steel fittings are the S-LOK and PH certifications. S-LOK certification stands for Superlok, a company that makes what is the industry’s best locking quality guarantee when it comes to stainless steel fittings.

S-LOK hoses, pipes, and valves are ideal for high pressure tube connections in marine, offshore, mining and industrial piping systems, whether using hydraulic systems fluids, fuel oil, lubricating oil, fresh water, salt water, wastewater, gas, steam and condensate. They will not leak and are highly durable in both hot and cold temperatures.

Avoiding Common Problems With Fittings

Poorly gapped and leaky tube fitting connections are a major source of inconvenience, damage and potential danger. Unfortunately, it’s incredibly common. In the past, it’s been difficult to tell without special tools if you’ve tightened your tube fittings enough or if you have them in too tight. The result in either case is leaks, potential blowouts due to a poor seal, or excessive strain on your tubing. All these seemingly minor issues can add up to real problems, especially in large scale industrial applications.

Choosing the right stainless steel compression fittings can make a massive difference in safety and cost for your operations.

Using patented technology, S-LOK tube fittings and valves create a perfect seal every time, ensuring there are no leaks, saving time, money, and making working environments safer. There’s also no possibility of over-tightening during installation, meaning no added stress on your tubes. The built-in gap gauge on every fitting ensures it is done right every time. This means there’s no safer fitting on the market, guaranteeing a safe and secure connection over its lifespan.

What Makes S-LOK Fittings Different?

S-LOK tube fittings are manufactured under very strict quality control to assure maximum reliable performance. S-LOK tube fittings require no special tools assembly. Connections can be quickly and easily made by simple insertion and tightening the nuts.

S-LOK tube fitting has been specifically designed for use on instrumentation, process and control systems and equipment employed in chemical, petroleum, power generating and pulp and paper plants. S-LOK tube fittings could also be used in extensive applications of other fields where very high quality tube fittings are required.
