What does Swagelok VCR stand for?

vacuum coupling radiation
VCR means vacuum coupling radiation, providing leak-tight service from vacuum to positive pressure. The VCO line uses an O-ring to form a seal.

What is VCO fitting?

VCO® O-Ring Face Seal Fittings are engineered for rapid assembly in pipe, tube, and welded systems for general industry, high-pressure, high-purity, and critical vacuum applications. VCO fittings install easily in limited spaces, with no axial clearance required.

Can VCR gaskets be reused?

VCR gaskets should be used fresh for each install but you can probalby get away with reusing the same gasket a few times for most applications. VCO gaskets/fittings can be reused many times. Gaskets are inexpensive to replace if damaged.

What is VCR connection?

Swagelok® VCR fittings offer the high purity of a metal- to-metal seal, providing leak-tight service from vacuum to positive pressure . The seal on a VCR assembly is made when the gasket is compressed by two beads during the engagement of a male nut or body hex and a female nut . VCR female nuts are silver plated .

What is VCR fitting?

Can you reuse Swagelok fittings?

One of the many advantages of the Swagelok two-ferrule fitting design is the ability to re-use the body without leaks. If you have made changes in the system design, by moving a fitting to a new location or changing the tubing, you can’t re-use the nuts and ferrules, but you can still re-use the fitting bodies.

What does VCO stand for?

A voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) is an electronic oscillator whose oscillation frequency is controlled by a voltage input.

Are gaskets reusable?

Reusing a gasket is not advised as the saturation and absorbancy condition can vary. A gasket should be assembled, then exposed to heat and fluid. A used gasket already having swelling due to the fluids should not be reused.

Are exhaust gaskets reusable?

As long as it is not rusting out and still provides a good seal it is OK to reuse the gasket. Thanks, a dollar saved will be applied elsewhere. I’ve reused mine 10x or better. And I’m turbo now, so the exhaust sees a lot of back pressure.
