Parflex 515H Compact hose is a low pressure hose with a reduced O.D. and tighter bend radius that can transport the same flow capacity as hoses with larger outside diameters. Typically, Parflex 515H hose has a 1/8" smaller diameter than standard rubber hose. In addition, the 515H is 5x lighter than comparable hoses. This thermoplastic hose is exceptionally suited for routing through tight spaces while maintaining flexibility. In fact, flexibility is one of the key features of this hose.
Compact 515H hose is often used in pilot lines or joy stick applications where multiple hoses are required to fit into a tight space. The smaller outside diameter of the hose and lower profile fittings contribute to space savings and reduced shipping costs. Not just the shipping costs from Parflex to you, but also from you to your customer.
Another feature of the reduced weight is installer fatigue. If a technician is building multiple units each day, the light weight of 515H hose becomes an assembly advantage. And when building bundles, the weight savings is compounded. The 515H hose uses the new Rapid Assembly Fittings for sizes -4 and -6 (developed for applications that need a type of quick connection) and the compact 54 Series Fittings which feature JIC and ORFS.
