oil & gas refinery

The oil and gas industry underpins modern society. Its products supply energy to power generators, heat homes, and provide fuel for vehicles and airplanes to carry goods and people worldwide. The equipment used to extract, refine, and transport these fluids and gases must stand up to harsh operating environments.

Optimize your oil and gas application with fittings and adapters from SHF Inc. We manufacture fluid control devices built from stainless steel, which is strong, corrosion-resistant, and capable of withstanding extreme temperatures. They’re proven to boost the functionality and durability of vital equipment and process media transfer lines.

Challenging Environments, Quality Materials 

The oil and gas industry uses an array of specialized equipment to access natural resources and bring them to market. From upstream extraction to midstream distribution and downstream refining, many operations require the storage and movement of process media under pressure and at tremendous temperatures. Chemicals used in these processes can be corrosive, abrasive, and hazardous to the touch.

Oil companies and their supply chain partners can benefit from integrating stainless steel fittings and adapters into their processes. This family of iron-based alloys is tough, corrosion-resistant, and hygienic. Exact performance characteristics vary by grade, but general traits are:

  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Doesn’t rust
  • Durable
  • Withstands heat
  • Resists fire
  • Sanitary
  • Nonmagnetic, in specific grades
  • Recyclable
  • Resists impact

Stainless steel has a high chromium content, which produces invisible and self-healing oxide film on a material’s exterior. A nonporous surface blocks moisture intrusion, diminishing crevice corrosion, and pitting.


SHF Inc. manufactures standard and custom stainless steel fittings and adapters for oil and gas applications. From safeguarding against corrosion to containing intense pressures, we have a fluid control product to meet your needs.

  • Crimp Fittings
  • Reusable Fittings
  • Hose Barb Fittings, or PushOn Fittings
  • Adapters
  • Instrumentation Fittings
  • Metric DIN Fittings
  • Valves
  • Metal House Weld-on Fittings
  • Welded Tubing
  • Custom Fabrication

Natural resource extraction and refinement often occur in remote, environmentally sensitive areas, which means containment is of the utmost importance. Our oil & gas instrumentation fittings & valves keep fluids and gases under control.


Our products are suitable for any oil and gas fluid processing application. Examples include:

  • Liquid Treatment
  • Heat Transfer
  • Mixing
  • Product Distribution
  • Evaporative Cooling
  • Evaporating and Drying
  • Distillation
  • Mass Separation
  • Mechanical Separation
  • Product Distribution
  • InstrumentationLines
  • Plumbing
  • Fluid Conveying

Custom Fluid Control Solutions 

No two oil and gas processes are alike. As a result, mass-produced fittings and adapters aren’t always suitable for an application. Obtain a bespoke solution for your fluid control situation with assistance from SHF Inc.

SHF Inc. can manufacture custom products tailored to your requirements. Our inhouse fabrication department is composed of veteran personnel capable of performing the following processes:

  • CNC Machining
  • Welding
  • Custom Traceability

We can cut threaded connections with precision. Onsite hose burst testing up to 24,000 pounds per square inch is available. It’s used to confirm no leak paths are present and devices can hold desired pressures.

Work With Us

Oil and gas equipment must excel during operation because any issues are high profile. At SHF Inc., we take quality seriously. All items we manufacture meet ISO 9002:2016 quality assurance standards for installation, production, and service. Part numbers, serial numbers, batch numbers, cheat codes, and any other form of traceability can be laser inked onto products.

Material is acquired from trustworthy suppliers, and compliance is corroborated upon arrival. Quality control personnel use precise testing and inspection equipment to verify every product surpasses applicable industry standards or customer specifications. All orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.

While our core focus is stainless steel hydraulic fittings for oil & gas industry applications, we can manufacture and ship just about any fluid control device. An extensive stainless steel inventory ensures we have the part you need in stock and ready to ship. All orders received before 3 p.m. Central Standard Time ship the same day.
