Hoses and Flexible Tubing-38-1

Hose Essentials

Learn the basics that can help extend hose production cycles, promote safety, and lower the total cost of ownership. Instructors introduce common terminology, explain variables impacting hose selection, and teach how to select hose for different applications. Coursework includes common practices for conducting hose inspections and best practices for preventative maintenance schedules. To schedule this training, please contact us.



Medium- and High-Pressure Cone and Thread Essentials

This course provides foundational knowledge in cone and thread preparation and installation. The goal is to enable safe, optimal performance of cone and thread fittings in medium- and high-pressure systems. To schedule this training, please contact us.


Valve Essentials

Safety is the key consideration when selecting, maintaining, or replacing valves. Learn how to choose the right valves for your specific applications by identifying proper valve types and functions, understanding key features and construction, and identifying common issues. To schedule this training, please contact us.



VCR and VCO Fitting Essentials

Learn the important benefits of when and how to use face seal fittings. Discover the differences between VCR® and VCO® fittings, their common features and key markings, and where they are used. Then, learn what it takes to install each fitting type effectively, and how to troubleshoot issues. To schedule this training, please contact us


Sampling System Training

Sampling systems are one of the main reasons analyzers fail. If a sample system is not bringing correct samples, an analyzer will not work well. Unfortunately, problems are very hard to detect and even harder to solve. Having additional sampling system skills, however, can bridge a gap in lost expertise and provide the knowledge needed to make analyzers more successful. We offer a training program to help people better understand potential problems, what might cause problems, and ultimately the ability to fix them. The following courses are conducted by a certified Swagelok sampling system trainer based on Industrial Sampling Systems, a technical reference book authored by industry expert and consultant Tony Waters.

  • Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS)
  • Sampling System Problem Solving and Maintenance (SSM)
  • Analyzer Technician Training (ATT)


Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS) 

Gain a high-level understanding of sampling systems while designing and building an optimized system that delivers timely, accurate results. Process Analyzer Sampling System (PASS) training can help your team achieve better results.



Sampling System Problem Solving and Maintenance (SSM)

Learn how to troubleshoot a variety of common and complex design issues from the process line through sample disposal. Sampling System Problem Solving and Maintenance (SSM) training can help keep your systems at peak performance.


Photography-Grab Sampling-022

Analyzer Technician Training

In this two-day course, you can learn to diagnose and eliminate common sampling system design flaws that result in erroneous data by using engineering principles, formulas, and calculations. Our experienced, certified trainer will walk your process analyzer sampling system with you while you apply what you've learned. To schedule this training at your facility, please contact us
