Technology Breakthrough in Safety and Reliability for Small Bore Tubing Systems
SPARTANBURG, S.C., Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE:CIR) announced that its HOKE® brand has launched the new GYROLOK® XP product family, advanced technology that significantly improves the installation assembly process and ensures safer, more reliable tube-fitting connections.
GYROLOK® XP is the only tube fitting specifically designed and extensively tested to overcome the challenges of assembling fittings onto a complete range of corrosion resistant, heavy wall tubes. The GYROLOK® XP fitting is designed to grip heavier wall tubes, which increases working pressures by up to 80 percent over conventional tube fittings.
“The GYROLOK® XP underscores our mission-critical severe service strategy,” said Erik Wiik, Group President, CIRCOR Energy. “The new product allows our XP fittings to be used on tubing with higher pressure ranges, including exotic alloy tubing used in severe service applications. This increased capability replaces the more expensive options, such as welded tube fittings or the cone and thread approach. The unique GYROLOK® XP design simplifies the installation and ensures that fittings cannot be overtightened, the most common installation error leading to leaks.”
