FLUID POWER: Designed for fluid systems where cleanliness is paramount and entrapment areas must be minimized, Swagelok® TS series biopharm fittings virtually eliminate fluid holdup at connection points. The fittings maintain a boreline seal, coupled with a metal-to-metal stop to improve drainability and cleanability. A metal-to-metal stop controls gasket compression and prevents over-tightening while minimizing ferrule movement. The design’s crown holds the gasket in place and directs expansion to space provided, while a gasket rib creates the boreline seal. The expansion space allows for gasket expansion during thermal cycling and minimizes gasket intrusion into the boreline. Seals remain leak-tight throughout pressure-temperature rating range. TS series fittings are available with a 316L stainless-steel ferrule and a choice of three gasket materials: PTFE, EPDM and Fluorocarbon FKM. The gaskets are compliant with FDA specifications. The complete line of fittings include ½-, ¾-, 1-, 1½-, 2-, 2½-, 3- and 4-inch sizes. Swagelok also offers a TS series adapter gasket to allow an existing ISO 2852-style ferrule to mate with a TS series ferrule. All meet AMSE-BPE fitting standards and supplied with and materials certification. Products are individually bagged and materials traceable. TS Series end connections are also available on Swagelok BPE series fittings.
