Swagelok

The responsiveness of Swagelok associates and the reliability of its products and custom solutions are significant contributors to our work. As much as 40% of the components in a typical ILS unit are Swagelok products and are considered a must-have specified by many of our clients due to the well-known reliability of the Swagelok brand.

In this video you can hear more about why Swagelok help ILS to deliver high performing and robust units, and why the collaboration is so important to both parties. Swagelok considers ILS an important company to partner with in their own plans for the future.

Pressure Control Solutions

PCS was born, in part, out of the fruitful collaboration between ILS and Equilibar. ILS works closely with PCS to help develop novel pressure and flow-control solutions for particularly challenging application areas requiring extremes in temperature, pressure, flow and materials.

Equilibar

What once started from a Google image search has grown into a 5-year valued collaboration. The unique 2-phase backpressure control capability of the Equilibar controllers combined with the massive turndown ratio has completely transformed how ILS designs its testing units.
