Simplified Hydraulic Flange System
The Parker Hose Products Division, a unit of Parker Hannifin Corp.’s Fluid Connectors Group, has developed a new flange system designed to make Code 61 and Code 62 hydraulic connections faster and easier to assemble. The Parker Full Flange system incorporates a patent-pending design that enables the flange to be attached to a hose after the fitting has been crimped on.
The Full Flange System gives end-users the ability to route hoses through tight spaces where assemblies with the flange end already attached would not fit. It can also be used repeatedly because – unlike captive flanges – the flange is not permanently locked on the fitting.
