Parker Parflex Hose
Parker Parflex hose is a thermoplastic hose suited for hydraulic and pneumatic applications with working pressures up to 10,000 psi. Parker manufactures Parflex hoses in long, continuous lengths with a kink-resistant, steel-reinforced construction. Industry experts prefer using Parflex hose for its unique properties: low weight and extreme flexibility. Additionally, many of the Parflex hose coverings are abrasion and corrosion-resistant.
Parker Parflex Hose Features
- Parker Parflex thermoplastic hose is up to 70% lighter than similar constructions from competitors.
- Thermoplastic hose constructions offer a compact O.D. (30-70% smaller), which allows for a tighter bend radius.
- The length change under pressure is as low as +/-1%. Low length change characteristics make Parflex 563TJ ideal for boom and cable track applications.
- Parflex TOUGHJACKET™ hydraulic hoses feature a special formulated polyurethane jacket and are available as twin-bonded lines. They also exceed industry requirements for abrasion resistance by 650 times.
