Simplified, harmonised range closely matches customer and application needs
VENIANO, Italy. 1. September 2016,- Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has introduced a more application-focused range of Push-Lok® hoses, designed to ease the selection of the correct product for the specific applications. Supporting all current needs combined with improved functionality, the new hose range eliminates product duplicates and is enhanced by the introduction of a new high temperature Push-Lok hose with lower fitting insertion forces.
Push-Lok hoses and fittings are accepted worldwide, and offer a wide range of connections aligned to DIN, BSP, SAE, JIC and ORFS in steel, brass or stainless steel.
The Parker Push-Lok system covers nine hose types to support a greater number of applications within multiple end markets. Many years of system development by Parker have resulted in a choice of different constructions comprising six rubber, three thermoplastic and one hybrid hose types. In addition a choice of six colours allows the easy identification of different fluids.
The hoses can be assembled in seconds, saving valuable production time and cost. The unique seals used on Push-Lok help ensure reliable, durable and leak-free servicing with a design factor of four. Due to the wide range of hose types and fitting end-configurations, along with the steel, brass and stainless steel options and worldwide availability, Parker is able to provide support in multiple markets and all geographies.
