Jacketed Tube Connector Eliminates Sleeves and Sealing Tape

April 11, 2013
JTC provides a leak-tight, Swagelok tube fitting connection between sections of single jacketed tubing.

Swagelok’s jacketed tube connector (JTC) was engineered to connect jacketed tubing systems, while protecting tubing from external degradation in corrosive environments. Designed to safeguard against environmental ingress in the chemical, petrochemical, oil, gas, and pulp industries, the JTC provides a leak-tight, Swagelok tube fitting connection between sections of single jacketed tubing, eliminating the need for sleeves and sealing tape.

The jacketed tube connector’s design combines tube-fitting technology with an O-ring seal and an environmental jacket seal nut, providing a leak-tight seal on the stainless steel core of the jacketed tubing and a water-tight seal on the outer diameter (OD) of the jacketed tubing. The JTC design includes a knurled jacket seal nut, repeated reassembly of the connector and a vent port to prevent accidental pressurization of the jacket cavity.

The connector is available in all standard tube fitting configurations and for use with 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2-inch jacketed tubing with up to 1/16-inch in nominal jacketed thickness. Operating temperature ranges from -67 to 180° F (-55 to 82°C) and working pressures up to 5 100 psig (420 bar).
