Braided metal hose assemblies and expansion joints are very similar in characteristics, however it is the difference in construction that determines which type is best for particular applications. Let’s take a look at each type and compare similarities so we know which one to select the next time we place an order.  Braided metal hose assemblies are made from flexible, per foot corrugated hose typically constructed from a single strip layer. The quantity of corrugations
In April of 2017, Peerless acquired the Hi-Temp Fabrication operation that specializes in the fabrication and distribution of non-metallic materials. Now it’s two years later and we’re just starting to scratch the surface of possibilities (see what I did there?). Our fabrication shop makes a wide variety of specialty products including insulation boards, panels, blankets, rolls, and laboratory tops for the aluminum, steel, gas, furnace, refractory, electrical and petrochemical industries. Some of the products we routinely

5 Reasons for Choosing DK-LOK

There’s been a great deal of research and testing done on the topic of mixing compression fittings of different brands. What follows are the results of a recent test. Tensile Pull Testing The purpose of this test procedure is to establish that any intermixed combination of DK LOK® and Swagelok® individual components will provide leak-free performance synonymous with pure assemblies when subjected to various conditions inherent to the environments for which compression tube fittings are
