CIRCOR launches new tube connection system

HOKE®, a CIRCOR product brand, has recently launched the new GYROLOK® XP product family, designed to improve the installation assembly process and ensure safer, more reliable tube-fitting connections.

According to the company, GYROLOK® XP tube fittings are designed and 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.”

CIRCOR International, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets differentiated technology products and sub-systems for markets including oil & gas, industrial, aerospace & defense and commercial marine.
