Parker Introduces Polyflex 2440P-04V32 HT-P Hydrogen Hose for Fast Compressed Hydrogen Refueling of Fuel Cell Electric Cars

Hannover Messe 2019; 1 - 5 April; Hannover Fairground; IAMD, Hall 23, Booth C33; ComVac, Hall 26, Booth B78

Flexible high-performance solution based on new ISO 19880-5 standard combines safety and an enhanced life cycle


Lampertheim, Germany, 1. April 2019 – The Polyflex Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has announced the launch of its new Polyflex 2240P-04V32 HT-P Hydrogen hose developed specifically for high pressure hydrogen refueling of fuel cell electric cars. The ISO 19880-5 complianthoses allow very fast refueling at temperatures as low as -40°C.


Polyflex Hydrogen Hose has a nominal internal diameter of 6.4 mm (1/4 inch) and a minimum bend radius of 150mm (5.90"). An industry-leading 875 bar working pressure allows dispenser manufacturers to overcome the constraints of slow and low-pressure hydrogen refueling. The hoses provide a safe and flexible high-pressure connection between dispenser and passenger car. Pressure tested to H70, mainly in accordance with ISO DIS 19880-5 makes 2440P-04V32 HT-P hydrogen hose an excellent choice for operators facing variable and unpredictable operating conditions at fuel stations.


“Today’s dispenser manufacturer engineers want robust solutions that provide 100% safety, have an easy-to-use design, and an extended life cycle,” said Alexander Hertje, Market Development Manager of Parker’s Polyflex Division. “Parker is continually advancing its hose product offering to meet the expanding challenges of tomorrow. The new Hydrogen dispenser hose has enhanced performance features at longer life cycles,” Hertje added. “Its tight bend radius allows space saving installations, and its high abrasion resistance as well as high ozone and UV resistant cover support deployment outdoors and reduce the risk of abrasion-related problems as well as cover cracks.”


Parker’s newest hydrogen hose features a high-performance thermoplastic inner core tube protected by four layers of high-tensile wire reinforcement. With a wide operating temperature range of -40°F to +185°F (-40°C to +85°C), high cleanliness, and an extremely low permeation rate, 2440P-04V32 HT-P Hydrogen hose is highly suitable for H70 pressure class dispenser applications.


2440P-04V32 HT-P Hydrogen hose will be on display in the Parker booth C33 in Hall 23 at the HMI (Hannover Messe Industrie) in Hannover, April 1-5, 2019.
