John Foster - Sarum Hydraulics

We go back to day one with Swagelok. Our call when we designed our Micropac pump back in 1982 was that you needed to make a well-engineered, quality product that was easy for Offshore and Aerospace to specify. And what a great fit the Swagelok range has been with our kit. Whether it has been fittings, valves or couplings, Swagelok has been the first port of call over all those years. It is nicely made as well, which unsurprisingly still counts for Engineers."

Custom Solutions - From Design Through To Development.

Feedback from a Tier 1 Power Company after using our custom solutions to build hydrogen pressure reduction panels.

"Today we have completed the post modification review and final close out of the project. The operations and maintenance teams are very pleased with what we have delivered and all the expected benefits have been realised which is great.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in what must have felt like a never ending project! The first carnation of this project was back in July 2016 where the intention was to just install a double block and bleed on the existing panel, this then grew to a complete panel replacement. The final proposal that the purchase order was raised against was ‘Rev J’ which goes to show the number of technical and budgetary challenges.

The support provided by yourself throughout the design, installation and after service has been first class and we are very grateful."

Lightfoot Defence

A solution developed by Lightfoot in collaboration with Swagelok Central helps keep the UK Ministry of Defence's (MoD) Eurofighter jet fleet operational and protected while in service.

The result of this collaboration was agreement by the MoD to purchase Lightfoot units incorporating a multitude of Swagelok products.

Swagelok Central's Custom Solutions department also proudly produces small assemblies for Lightfoot Defence projects.

Military ground personnel use the Lightfoot units to maintain the refrigerant that keeps the Eurofighter's Defensive Aids Sub-System (DASS) at precisely the right operational temperature.

Richard Walsh - A-Gas


An integral part of the A-Gas facilities are the Swagelok valves, fittings and tubing which form parts of the process equipment. These items are critical to our ability to be able to meet the demands of our customers as any downtime will have a significant impact on supply. Therefor having a reliable supplier like Swagelok who can meet our requirements for new equipment, spares and replacement parts is a very valuable differentiator for A-Gas. The Swagelok components supplied are of a high standard and very reliable in the applications we use them within. The equipment is also easy to service allowing the maintenance team at A-Gas to keep on top of their schedules for these items and focus on other critical aspects of the plant.
