Duolok® tube fittings use a two-ferrule design to ensure leak-tight performance in analytical and process instrumentation applications where leak-tight performance can have a significant impact on quality, productivity and cost. They are designed and manufactured to interchange and intermix with Swagelok® tube fittings.

*Duolok tube fittings are rated to the maximum allowable pressure rating of the tubing it connects.
Duolok tube fittings consist of four precision-machined components: body, front ferrule, back ferrule, and nut. During make-up, the double-ferrule design, with the staged sequential swaging action of the ferrules, compensates for the variation in tubing materials, hardness, and thickness of the tube wall to provide leak-tight connections in an extensive range of applications.
316 stainless steel fittings are manufactured from cold-finished bar stock in accordance with ASTM A-276 and ASTM A-479. Elbows, tees and crosses, are machined from close-grained 316 stainless steel forgings in accordance with ASTM A-182. All components are heat code traceable with certified material test reports (CMTRs) available on request. More information about other materials.
Duolok tube fittings are completely assembled and individually bagged to assure the highest levels of quality and cleanliness. The protective bags eliminate contamination (tubing burrs, dirt, etc.). They are packaged in convenient, small-lot quantities for easy procurement and handling. Box labels are color-coded according to the tube fittings’ material. Labels include the part number, material, product description and picture of the product.
Factory-Installed PTFE Tape
NPT thread and BSP tapered thread fittings are availabe with factory installed high-quality teflon tape. Factory-taped fittings reduce costs and ensures that threads are properly taped for more leak-tight installations.
