LINE PIPE SWAGES
The Importance of Choosing the Right Swage Fittings
For oil and gas equipment and part suppliers in Texas, having a good selection of swage nipples in inventory is always important in the oil field industry. These specialized fittings can be used in a variety of piping systems and can be called line pipe swages, tubing swages or casing swages based on their size, shape, and use.
There are different options in the production of swage fittings. They can be produced from either bar or pipe and, with quality products, they are designed to stand up to the same pressure for the pipe used in the system. In other words, it is essential to pair the correct swage nipple with the rating for the available working pressure of the straight seamless pipe used in the system.
What to Consider
The choice of swage fittings includes the shape of the nipple as well as the need for reduction from one pipe to another. Most used in the oil field are threaded on both ends, but there are other swage nipple options including those that are threaded only on one end or unthreaded or non-threaded on both ends. There are also options that are beveled on both ends.
