It turns out you can mix business with pleasure.  This year we took KnechtionRepair on the road visiting our warehouse and even a few of our customers and distributors.  We had a great time road tripping (even through the sometimes frigidly cold but positively beautiful country that surrounds Alaska and Canada in November, brrrrrr!),  meeting everyone and adding that personal touch to our small but growing business.  If we didn’t catch you in 2016 we certainly hope to see you in our 2017 RV road trip travels!

We are truly grateful for everyone who has been and still is a part of helping make our small family business a success and wish you all a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Adventurous New Year!!

The missing tool has finally arrived. Repairing compression tube fittings is now possible with the KnechtionRepair tool. No need to remove the damaged fitting from the machine. An all in one kit can repair the damage easily. A real time saver to say the least.

Remember that job you were on, you were almost finished for the shift and all that was left to do was install the last few pieces of factory tubing. You know the tubing with so many intricate bends that looks more like a pile of spaghetti than gas turbine instrumentation.  Normally this wouldn’t be a […]

Having the KnechtionRepair tools around has been a true time saver.  During start-up of a newly constructed steam plant, the boiler feed pump strainers were plugging up frequently.  Crews cleaning the strainers had to remove the DP instrument tube each time, eventually damaging the threads.  Having the KnechtionRepair tool on site we were able to […]

Certain locations in a plant or piece of equipment warrant repair rather than replacement of a tube fitting.  The KnechtionRepair Tools are the only way to achieve the substantial cost savings associated with avoiding replacement of that equipment and the tubing system associated with it.

Over the past 30 years I have personally encountered complications in the reassembly of the liquid tubing components on turbine engine component repairs due to thread damage to either the nut or the connector. Most especially during the rebuild process of duel fuel, fuel nozzle components where often times we encounter damaged threads on either […]

I have been supplying Instrument Fittings and Valves for over 30 years.  Customers would constantly ask about thread dies for chasing damaged fitting threads. The existing ring dies were difficult to center properly in confined space. When I saw the Knechtion Repair tool I had a gut feel that this would be a great solution. […]

I recently used the Knechtion repair tool on a 3/8″ compression fitting on an oil line in the accessory compartment of one of our frame fives. Without the Knechtion repair tool I would have been forced to remove, and rebend, a six foot length of tubing. The tool made what used to be a several […]

I used the Knechtion Repair Tap and Die tool offshore on a platform refurbishment and upgrade project, it saved approximately $5,000 in materials and over 2 days of labor costs on instrumentation repairs and installation”. We were able to repair a large number of cross-threaded and ill-fittings connections in lieu of running new lines.
