Hydraulic Hose Line Expanded

Posted on November 22, 2013

Parker Hannifin has expanded its range of high-pressure, no-skive Compact Spiral hydraulic hose with the addition of two new heavy-duty hose sizes common to off-road equipment used in mining, forestry and oil and gas applications. The new -24 and -32 Compact Spiral hoses are available in 5000 psi (787TC) and 6000 psi (797TC) capacities, with new fitting end configurations to increase their application flexibility.

Parker said both weigh less than standard SAE spiral hose, have smaller outside diameters and smaller bending radii. For larger hose sizes, weight reduction and improved flexibility are particularly significant advantages, the company said, as standard -24 and -32 spiral hoses are nearly rigid, which imposes design limitations and makes hose assembly routing difficult, exhausting and time consuming.

Along with the new hose sizes, Parker added more than 60 new fitting end configurations to its 77 Series steel fitting line for Compact Spiral hose. Nearly 300 fitting configurations are now available.
