Why Attend a Hy-Lok Installation Seminar?

Hy-Lok UK distribution is well known for their product knowledge and associate training in the industry. When problems arise, regardless of brand or where purchased, we tend to be called in and consulted. Of the thousands of troubleshooting calls we have made over the last 30 years, most are due to installer error or problems with tubing. Tube and fitting installation is all too often regarded as a simple procedure with little or no consequences associated with improper techniques. Experience tells us otherwise. Leaks, downtime, blowouts, and personal injury can occur when safe installation practices are not followed. We are all interested in reducing operating costs by achieving incident free operations.

This Hy-Lok installation seminar will do just that, and our distributors are happy to share their expertise with you.
